This booklet briefly describes completed, current and future telecommunication projects undertaken in the framework of COST. Eleven projects are listed as completed : these range from "Aerial network with phase control" to "Man machine communications by means of speech signals". Seventeen projects are currently operational; these include topics such as the coding and transmission of HDTV signals and high bit rate optical fibre systems. A further twelve projects are expected to become operational by mid 1990; these will continue with more advanced development work in areas which were the subject of recently terminated COST projects, or will address new technology areas. Examples of these include several projects on networks, digital signal processing, stereoscopic TV, synthetic speech and speech recognition, and models of the ionosphere.
