The Management Committee (MC) that consists of up to two representatives of each COST country nominated by the COST National Coordinators, is the main decision-making body. The MC, overseen by a chair and vice-chair, will coordinate the Action. The MC will meet at least once a year to discuss the Action structure, coordination and implementation of the Action activities, allocation, and use of the COST budget and whether additional participants should be invited. Other urgent matters will be dealt using online voting and virtual meetings. Each COST Country and Cooperating State participating in the Action has one vote in the MC and decisions are taken based on the majority of votes of the MC members present.

MC members are responsible for (i) organizing Action activities to achieve its objectives, (ii) contributing to disseminate these activities and their results, (ii) promoting collaboration among Action participants, (iii) inform on funding opportunities in their home countries, and (iv) identifying other international networks to interact with.
