What is COST
COST stands for European COoperation
in the field of Scientific and Technical
designed to strengthen Europe in scientific and technical research for
peaceful purposes through the support of cooperation and interaction
between European researchers. There are 34 states which are members of
COST and 1 country which is a cooperating member.
The COST Actions receive financial support from
the European Commission
through the Framework Programme. This supports workshops, working group
short term scientific meetings and the expenses of the management
COST works through a series of Actions which take
the form of a
coordinated network of research projects
funded at a national level.
NPL has, over the years, been involved in a number
of COST projects
with an interest in thermodynamic properties.
