COST is an intergovernmental framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, allowing the coordination of nationally-funded research on a European level. COST contributes to reducing the fragmentation in European research investments and opening the European Research Area to cooperation worldwide. Please find more information on our website:

In 2011, COST is celebrating the International Year of Chemistry with several events involving high-level chemists, PhD students and Early Stage Researchers:

• COST Exploratory Workshop "Quantitative Nanostructure-Toxicity Relationships (QNTR)",

• COST Exploratory Workshop "Biofilms: Friend or Foe",

• ESF-COST High-level Research Conference "Natural Products: Chemistry, Biology and Medicine",
