COST2100 was launched on December 12, 2006, through a Kick-Off Meeting held in Brussels, during which the Chairman and Vice-Chairman of the Action and the Chairpersons of the Working Groups were elected.
The Memorandum of Understanding was signed by many countries. Moreover, some NON-COST countries applied for participation.
This number of signatory countries leaded to a large amount of institutions (both from academia and from industry) involved in the Action.
The Action had a duration of four years and ended on December 11, 2010.
