The main objective of the COST Action is to further develop and transfer the
biophysical achievements of Atomic Force Microscopy to NanoMedicine and clinical
research.
Is AFM useful in a clinical environment?
If yes, when, where, and how?
TD-1002
Evolution: In Krakow, on September 2012, MC decided to favor organizing
specific Workshops under WG control.

During Year 3 we had a very good collaboration with the company
NanoAndMore.
They help us a lot providing free AFM tips allowing standardization
experiments in several team involved in the Action.

Leading a COST Action: an APORIA
COST Action: Just burning EU money!
{from COST office} The tangible outputs are preferred. Please, notice that correct
use of COST tools (e.g. well organized meetings) per se is NOT a tangible output,
but indeed a tool to achieve your results.
COST aims at supporting Cooperation in Science and Technology
Cooperation: Joint operation or action
COST does not fund research itself, but provides support for networking
activities carried out within COST.

In this room Please endeavour to emulate
the first five letters and not the last seven.
Thank you
Clearly, we can not spend 4 years talking. Even in the best places in Europe.

How is it possible to solve this issue?
-1- Convincing people that United we stand, divided we fall.
(in French: L’union fait la force).
Most of the teams involved in a COST Action are not rich.
Despite their interest in COST Action, most people are not willing to invest
their own money in a collective and anonymous project. No personal credit.
In science if you rare not the first you are nobody!
Most of the team expect they will not spend their own funds but at the
contrary are hoping to receive money for the join project.
During my talk at the kickoff meeting, I explained that …..100 000 € : 40 =
2500 €
21
-2- Giving the minimum for ACTING!
Most of the participants are experimenters NOT theorists.
For instance to perform experiments decided during a WG meeting, at least
they need samples or chemicals, especially when they want to improve
standardization by performing the same experiment in different laboratories.
We strongly suggest to dedicate 10 - 15% of the total annual budget to allow
this kind of expenses.
This should be consider not as funding research (NO SALARIES, NO
INVESTMENT which represent more than 80% of research activity) but
helping people involved in a COST Action to do something else than just
burning EU money and obtain relevant results.
