  3. Your feedback will be summarized in the respective Working Groups or in your personal page.

Motivation letter

The motivation letter with institution header and your signature typically contains short paragraphs on:
  • Background information on your scientific activities your institution and funding of your research related to MitoEAGLE
  • Why do you wish to join the Action MitoEAGLE?
  • Your potential contributions to the Action MitoEAGLE.
  • The Working Group(s) selected as your primary field of activities.

If your country does not yet have 2 MC Members

  1. MC Members should be two delegates for each country from different institutions (different institutes from the same university are possible), which is common practice in COST, particularly in countries with widespread participation. In addition, three MC Substitutes should be nominated.
  2. Contact your COST National Coordinator (CNC). On the list of CNCs (, select your country under "Display by country representative". Your COST National Coordinator (CNC) is responsible for nominations to the Management Committee (MC).
  3. Contact the Action Chair with a very brief outline of your active role in the MC: choice of working group(s). We will need a balance of MC members in the Working Groups and management tasks, so that all WGs are represented well in the course of the Action.
  4. The Scientific Committee suggested that the proposed Action must develop and implement specific plans to increase the involvement of Early Career Investigators and for maintaining and monitoring gender balance. Please, ask your COST National Coordinator (CNC) to take this comment into consideration when nominating the MC. See also: Circular - MitoEAGLE Management Committee nominations, 2016-03-21.
