COST switches to .eu!
COST is delighted to announce its new website address: www.cost.eu COST has opted to set up a customised and easy-to-remember Internet address, reflecting its dynamic and pan-European identity.
"This certainly is an important step in the visibility of COST," said Professor Francesco Fedi, President of the COST Committee of Senior Officials (CSO), “and a recognition of COST as a truly independent European tool for COST Member States to set up cooperation networks and coordinate nationally-funded research."
Professor Fedi also acknowledged "the collaboration between the services of the the Council of the European Union and the European Commission in making the domain name available to COST as a fine example of European interinstitutional cooperation.”
“This new brick in the wall of COST recognition anchors it even more firmly into the European Research Area (ERA) and reaffirms its unique role in opening the ERA to the rest of the world,” Professor Fedi concluded.
