The COST 296 Action MIERS (Mitigation of Ionospheric Effects on Radio Systems) within the ionospheric

community has the objectives, embodied in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to develop an increased

knowledge of the effects imposed by the ionosphere on practical radio systems, and the development and implementation

of techniques to mitigate the deleterious effects of the ionosphere on such systems. This introductory

paper summarizes briefly the background and historical context of COST 296 and outlines the main objectives,

working methods and structure. It also lists the participating countries and institutions, the Management Committee

(MC) Meetings, the Workshops, Short-term Scientific Missions. In addition, the paper discusses the dissemination

activities and the collaboration among the participating institutions and researchers, before outlining

the content of the Final Report.
