The Gravitational Astronomy LISA group at Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CISC) participates in a COST action within HORIZON 2020
On October 24, 2016 was published the resolution of COST actions within the European framework program Horizon 2020. The gravitational-Astronomy LISA group at the Institute of Space Sciences (IEEC-CSIC) led by researcher Carlos F. Sopuerta participates in the COST “gravitational waves, basic black and physical holes” action.


The action will target international cooperation in the area of gravitational wave astronomy (with focus on its impact to black hole and fundamental physics) by bringing together at least 13 different countries. The action will produce a number of multimedia contents and outreach events, including one short-movie, a TV documentary and a book which will be distributed in all of Europe, disseminating knowledge on gravitational physics and raising awareness for this science in Europe.

COST actions

COST program (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) within the European framework program for research and innovation Horizon 2020 aims to strengthen the scientific and technical research in Europe, funding the establishment of collaborative networks among researchers.

It works by networks called COST actions established at the initiative of researchers not be defined thematic priorities. A minimum of five participants from five different countries is required. The selected projects will receive funding to implement activities previously established in the joint program with a duration of four years.
