In 2007 we applied for a COST Action program entitled "Maternal Interaction with Gametes and Embryos". Our application was successful and on 28 February 2008 our COST Action (FA0702) had its first Management Committee meeting in Brussels. This Action is aimed to promote further understanding of mechanisms of interactions of gametes and embryos with their maternal environment by joining laboratories from different countries with excellent expertise in the fields of reproductive biology. A full description of the COST Action can be found in the Memorandum of Understanding. We selected the GEMINI acronym for our Action.

We started a new COST Action (FA1201) entitled "Epigenetics and Periconception" in 2013.  We chose the EPICONCEPT acronym for this new Action. Please use the email address of the EPICONCEPT in any communications relating GEMINI.
