This paper presents a review of the ionospheric scintillation monitoring and modelling by the European groups

involved in COST 296. Several of these groups have organized scintillation measurement campaigns at low and

high latitudes. Some characteristic results obtained from the measured data are presented. The paper also addresses the modeling activities: four models, based on phase screen techniques, with different options and application domains are detailed. Finally some new trends for research topics are given. This includes the wavelet analysis, the high latitudes analysis, the construction of scintillation maps and the mitigation techniques.
