scientific report after the mission, post-approve or reject the report.
The GH monitors the incoming approved applications, sends the successful applicants their Grant Notification and ensures that all grants are paid within the deadline of 30 days.
The applicant encodes a CG application by loging into e-COST and clicking on the ITC Conference
Grants tab, following the instructions available on line at this web link www.cost.eu/ITC_conferencegrants_userguide. Any already submitted applications are available for consultation in the applicant’s e-COST profile.

- CV of the proposers;
- adherence of the proposals to the MuTaLig COST Action purposes (topic and relevance of the meeting);
- type of proposer’s contribution submitted to or accepted at the meeting (oral communication, poster);
- gender balance of the proposers;
- geographical distribution of the proposers.
