An overview of the COST initiative in collaborative materials researchFunded under: IC-COST
The devolved, bottom-up, style of management organisation of COST is described together with the close-knit, integrated type of research and development that is conducted in the materials programmes by international groups of collaborators representing industry, research institutes and universities. The closely targeted research programme of COST 510 on advanced materials for power engineering, is described in greater detail to illustrate the approach that is followed. Examples of industrial developments are given.
