Working Groups

The activities of the Action are divided into four working groups that form the organization backbone. The working groups (WGs) are further subdivided into task groups (TGs), which will each tackle one particular task, typically a paper project. TGs can work relatively independently, and can contain members of different working groups. The task group leaders coordinate the activity for specific projects within the topic of the different working groups. Note that for organizational / financial matters the relevant contact person is the WG leader the TG is assigned to.

If you are new and want to join one or several task groups, please fill in this questionnaire. If you are already a member of PROFOUND, and want to join an additional task group, please contact the TG coordinator stated below, and inform the relevant WG leader as well.
