ADAPT is a COST Action (IS1103) and its aims are summed up as follows on the COST website.
ADAPT is a four-year EU network project with 110 members in 30 countries. It is concerned with translating health-related research on migrants and ethnic minorities into policy change.
COST has a very specific mission and goal. It contributes to reducing the fragmentation in European research investments and opening the European Research Area to cooperation worldwide. As a precursor of advanced multidisciplinary research, COST plays a very important role in building a European Research Area (ERA). It anticipates and complements the activities of the EU Framework Programmes, constituting a “bridge” towards the scientific communities of emerging countries.
