COST History • In 1971 COST Actions only form of cooperation in science and COST History • In 1971 COST Actions only form of cooperation in science and technology in Europe • In 1974 the European Science Foundation, in 1983 the First Framework Programme and in 1985 the EUREKA Programme • The existence of these initiatives notwithstanding, the interest of the European scientific community in COST constantly increased • From 19 countries in 1971 to the present 35 countries • From 7 Actions in 1971 to an average of 200 Actions each year • From 7 research domains in 1971 to the present 14 domains 7 European COoperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research COST 1 March 2005
