Our COST Action website package by AlbanyWeb offers your team a stable, highly-secure, platform that is easy to use, and easy to customise.  

In our hosted website package, we offer a fully functional public-facing website, with extra tools to help you organise your group and publicise your activities.  Updating is easy.  Creating it is hassle-free.  Let us remove the effort of creating a website, so you can concentrate on the core activities of your COST Action.  AlbanyWeb's COST Action packages are compliant with visual identity and branding guidelines issued by COST.
