NOTE Subject: Creation of a Fifth COST Fund
The JAF Group, in its meeting of 19 November 2002, decided to propose to the CSO the creation of a Fifth COST Fund of a total volume of 2.000.000 euro.
The contributions to the new Fund would be called for in four instalments ("tranches"), the first call taking place soon after the Committee's decision. The Member States would have the possibility to pay the full amount of their contribution in one payment, if they so wish.
With a view to the CSO meeting on 3 December, delegations will find attached a breakdown of Member States' quota, prepared by the Secretariat.
Delegations wishing to refer to the history of the four COST funds and the allocations of payments from Member States in the Forth Fund can find the data in doc. COST 245/93.
