COST's 50 years & Ministerial Conference

COST celebrates its 50th birthday of connecting researchers and innovators

2021 marks COST’s 50th anniversary. While COST was created on 22-23 November 1971, this special event deserves more than one day to pay tribute to the most compelling achievements that occurred under the first European programme for collaborative research. The Ministerial Conference that took place on 4 May 2021, under the auspices of the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU, offered a great opportunity to review key milestones and success stories that took place during the past half-century.  

On this occasion, COST launched a dedicated “COST 50 years” publication and website gathering an extensive overview of COST in the last half-century.
