3.1 News from the COST office
e-COST system will soon be further enhanced through
the implementation of a Strong Authentication feature,
enabling Online Travel Reimbursement Request
(OTRR) forms to be submitted fully online.
Strong Authentication will enable Action participants
and other relevant stakeholders to identify themselves
as unique individuals to the e-COST system in a fully
secure way, and thus submit not only supporting
documents but also the OTRR form (which currently
still needs to be signed and sent in hard copy)
completely online.
