There are the different options how you can participate in ConservePlants:

  • As a Management Committee (MC) member. The MC is responsible for the coordination, implementation, and management of an Action. For each Action, up to two representatives per COST Member can be nominated to the MC. To participate as an MC, please contact the COST National Coordinator (CNC) of your country. The CNC will instruct you how to proceed.
  • As a Working Group (WG) member. The working groups (WGs) perform the tasks required by the Action to fulfil the objectives of the network project plan, as described in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). To participate in one of our five working groups, please follow the instructions on the COST website: Descriptions of WGs and their leaders are found here.



During its lifetime, the Action will provide opportunities to get involved in activities through training schools, short-term scientific missions (STSMs), workshops, conferences, etc. There are various steps to follow to participate in COST Actions, which depend on the location of the institution. To participate in one of the activities organised by ConservePlants, follow the offers on the website.

As a non-COST country participant. To know more about international cooperation, please visit the Global Networking section of the COST website.
