"About"

The overall objective is to enhance international discipline cooperation so as to exchange ideas, share good practices and assess technologies that could result in reducing the emissions of ammonia and GHGs from livestock buildings and thus to lead to a more environmental friendly and sustainable livestock production. For this purpose, techniques that could be applied to monitor GHGs and ammonia concentration will be assessed

An international cooperation to reduce atmospheric emissions from livestock buildings has started under the framework of EU COST actions. The project is COST Action CA16106 “LivAGE: Ammonia and Greenhouse Gases Emissions from Animal Production Buildings”, which started on May 2017 and will last for four years. On 28th and 29th September 2017 a project meeting was held in Bucharest (Romania) to start the project activities.

The main objective of LivAGE is to enhance international multidisciplinary cooperation for exchanging ideas and knowledge, sharing good practices and assessing innovative technologies to reduce greenhouse gases and ammonia from livestock buildings. LivAGE includes most EU expertise in this topic, and aims to contribute to a more environmental friendly and sustainable livestock production.

We are looking to fund up to short term scientific missions (STSM) to develop linkages and scientific collaborations between institutions, which contribute to the objectives of LivAGE.

Objective

STSM actions aim to enhance the existing networks and foster collaboration by allowing scientists to visit an institution in another COST Country participating in the CA16106 Action. STSM should contribute to the scientific objectives of the COST Action. Applications of young researchers are especially encouraged.

Duration

From 5 working days to 3 months; for Early Career Investigators (ECI =less than PhD + 8 years) specific conditions (higher funding) if duration is from 3 to 6 months.

"About"

“COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a pan-European intergovernmental framework. Its mission is to enable break-through scientific and technological developments leading to new concepts and products and thereby contribute to strengthening Europe’s research and innovation capacities. It allows researchers, engineers and scholars to jointly develop their own ideas and take new initiatives across all fields of science and technology, while promoting multi- and interdisciplinary approaches. COST aims at fostering a better integration of less research intensive countries to the knowledge hubs of the European Research Area. The COST Association, an International not-for- profit Association under Belgian Law, integrates all management, governing and administrative functions necessary for the operation of the framework. The COST Association has currently 36 Member Countries.”
