The COST project has started on July 12, 2007 and is expected to end after 18 months of activity.
The first step of the project was to develop a Data Exchange Format and develop the Core package for all developers. These issues were the subjects of discussion for the 1st expert meeting held in Lisbon, 12-14 October 2007. -->

After 6 months, an interim report was submitted to the European Commission, following the first release of the Data exchange Format (version 1.0), the COSTcore package (version 1.0) and a beta version of the Exploratory Data Analysis package (COSTeda, version 0.2).
The second expert meeting was held in Sukarrieta (24-26 June 2008) to discuss the two packages dealing with precision estimates (Design-based estimates COSTdbe and Model-base estimates COSTmbe) and prepare the ground for the simulation package (COSTsim).-->
