This exhibition was part of the COST 'Year of Visibility'. COST -  European Cooperation in Science and Technology - is an intergovernmental framework that allows 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. The goal of COST is to ensure that Europe holds a strong position in the field of scientific and technical research for peaceful purposes, by increasing European cooperation and interaction. This initiative makes it possible for national facilities, universities and private industry to work jointly on innovative Research and Development (R&D) activities.
