COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
Bonded structures deal with very distinct fields, such as materials science, surface science, physics and structural mechanics. Nevertheless, in order to achieve industrial progress, an interdisciplinary approach has to be adopted in order to address the challenges of this topic. CertBond Cost action brings together experts in those different fields aiming to enable the implementation of composite bonded joints in primary structures.
