Working Module proposals

Working Module proposals

Call for new Working Module proposals (continuously open):

The scope of COST EMF-MED is very wide. Consequently, in the project proposal (i.e. in the MoU), as well as in our work plan, we anticipated that the activities will be focused into the Working Modules (WMs). A WM should be based on a subtopic worth pursuing in accordance with the Action objectives. The purpose of WMs is to achieve and maintain focus and efficiency in our Action. WMs are temporary work items, spanning from short-duration simple WMs to long-duration more complex WMs. Thus they are not fixed during the Action lifetime (unlike WGs).

Preparing a Working Module proposal means that you are ready to prepare a document (min. 3 pages) containing:
– WM topic and description;
– Comprehensive review (state-of-the-art);
– Gaps and challenges;
– Objectives to be achieved;
– Proposed research activities.
