In this paper, we introduce slant Riemannian submersions from cosymplectic manifolds onto Riemannian manifolds. We obtain some results on slant Riemannian submersions of a cosymplectic manifold. We also give examples and inequalities between the scalar curvature and squared mean curvature of fibres of such slant submersions in the cases where the characteristic vector field is vertical or horizontal.
