THE TECHNICAL COMMITTEE COST CHEMISTRY
Introduction from the Chair
We have launched the Chemistry COST Actions in 1992 and since the beginning the scientific
activities have been very successful and growing. Presently 24 COST countries are actively
participating to the Chemistry Actions as well as several other institutions in the rest of the world.
The Chemistry COST activities of the ongoing Actions so far corresponds to more than one hundred
projects or networks in which more than six hundred research groups are involved in collaborative
programs. This amount corresponds to about 2000 scientists. According to the information given by
the participating groups, the total budget involved in co-ordinated research in Chemistry COST is
now reaching above 200 M €. As we indicated in our previous report, this data must be interpreted
carefully according to the difficulty in obtaining homogenous information from all the different
countries. Nevertheless, once again, it shows the importance of the collaborative research earned out
under the Chemistry secretariat of COST. With a grant of 0.7 M € from the European Commission,
the secretariat is able to support yearly the participation of 700 chemists to 120 scientific meetings
organised by COST Chemistry. This correspond to 0.35 % as co-ordination costs.
The seven first Actions (D1-D7) have been terminated after 5 or 6 years of activities. Eight new
Actions (D8-D15) have been launched in 1997-1999, and tree others (D16-D18) which have been
accepted, will start before the end of the year. The first seven Actions D1-D7 have been evaluated by
committees involving external referees, even from non European countries. This evaluation
procedure was very important and its seriousness have contributed to further increase the credibility
of the COST Chemistry Technical Committee and Management Committees of the different COST
Actions in Chemistry.
In the last report, it was announced the launching of the Alliance AllChemE involving the
organisations representing the European Scientific Community. The report produced by AllChemE:
"Chemistry, Europe and the future", and sent all around Europe to the governments and institutions
in charge of scientific policies was considered as a very important document. It has been edited in
English, German, French and Italian and we hope that it has contributed to promote Chemistry and
Chemical Engineering in Europe.
Since July 1998, a Chemistry COST web site has been operative. All working groups, projects and
networks are presented, as well as most meetings and opportunities in Europe in the field of
Chemistry, (http://www.unil.ch/cost/chem)
During the course of 1999, several studies have been produced by Chemistry COST:
♦ Nanochemistry ♦ Combinatorial Chemistry ♦ Polymerisation via Metal Catalysts.
Those studies havepermitted to prepare new y Actions.
Chemistry COST Actions have played a major role in the building up of the scientific co-operation in
Europe. By promoting Chemistry, we have contributed to the progress of the European Science and
to the reinforcement of the European concept. We have to pursue efforts for the benefit of Chemistry,
of Science, of the European economic activity and the quality of life of European citizens.
