Within the European research programmes COST -network research- and EUROCORES -collaborative research-, domusBITae has been proposed as a fundamental research infrastructure for enabling effective scientific cooperation. These both  programmes are supported by the European Science Foundation (ESF) in coordination with national research funding agencies. The proposals submitted concern scientific research in the field of an interdisciplinary approximation to information, aimed at achieving an overarching understanding of information phenomena. In both programmes were presented under the same title: "Bridging domains: a multidimensional approach to information" as a trans-disciplinary proposals, although based on a different research organization.

The proposed research is rooted on 

an active interdisciplinary International community and a critical mass of research groups at the global level, and domusBITae would serve to an effective nearing of these communities.

 In a mid term, the proposal of 

bridging these communities is envisaged as a key factor in the emergence of a new transdisciplinary science of information as an integrated framework in which information will be considered in all its formal, natural, cognitive, social, technical, ethical and philosophical aspects. Within both proposals t

he interdisciplinary research is conceived through a transversal coordination of: (i) Research domains, defined by their objects of research, and (ii) Frameworks, characterized by the articulation of specific paradigms and methodologies. For more information see announcement in BITrum news channel (see announcement)

The COST programme is aimed at providing networking and coordination among ongoing scientific research. The EUROCORES proposal is the thematic phase, i.e., in case of being elected a set of collaborative research projects could be supported at the European and international level by means of an independent contest of project proposals.
