About 100 COST projects have been launched covering a broad area of technology and science. Each country pays for its own part in the research, whereas the Commission of the European Communities provides the secretariat. Various research activities in meteorology and environmental pollution are identified. The paper ends by discussing the COST project entitled "Implementation of a European research project on the utilization of UHF/VHF radar wind profiler networks for improving weather forecasting in Europe".
