As a coordination office, COSI plays the role of a hub between the higher education institutions. COSI supports them with the development and provision of national services in the area of «scientific information». COSI coordinates a sustainable, dynamic portfolio of shared services and infrastructures for them and fosters the relationships between service providers and customers.

With COSI, a new opportunity will be created to offer services in a simple manner on an inter-institutional basis as well as to gain an overview of all services.
