COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is one of the largest pan-European scientific programs, founded in 1971, with more than 40-year successful history of supporting scientific and technical projects, providing scientists with the opportunity to establish and develop interdisciplinary cooperation in all fields of science and technology. COST Action projects have been implemented for 4 years and during this time forming scientific and technical networks with regular meetings of researchers, who exchange experience and do creative work.
In March 2018, by the decision of COST headquarters in Brussels, the Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia joined the project «Integrated Wireless Networks of 5G and Higher Generations», which in COST Action CA15104 is called "Inclusive radio communication networks for 5G and beyond" (IRACON). The project is designed to provide breakthrough scientific developments and revolutionary approaches in the technologies of networks and radio access systems to strengthen the potential of science in research and innovation in Europe.
