Main Achievements

The objectives of this COST Action will be achieved through networking possibilities offered by
the COST framework, in particular the following aspects
  • Organization of meetings, workshops and Training Schools to which scientists and representatives of stakeholders and industry will be invited. This will facilitate harmonization and quality improvement.
  • Yearly Biochar meetings which enable in-depth evaluation and integration of results obtained in individual research projects.
  • Exploitation of Short-Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) providing highest benefits from existing complementarities and creating collaborative research teams.
  • Coordination of structured dissemination activities towards academia, industry and the general public.
  • Providing an interactive knowledge platform and innovative webbased social networks allowing the creation of groups and discussion forums in order to identify new stakeholders and to coordinate creative idea-generating processes.
  • Creation of an innovative, effort-stimulating feeling by a common goal among participants, in particular Early-Stage Researchers to mobilize their full potential.
