14. Working Groups

14.1 Definition

A working group is a collaboration of members within a SIG on new well-defined and specific activities that need to be developed, such as:

  • creation of a document; 
  • creation of guidelines;
  • development of an educational or QA programme;
  • development of a system for certification.

In general the working group assembles the most experienced members and is chaired by a Working Group Coordinator. A Working Group can be appointed by the Executive Committee to respond to one of the above mentioned needs. Alternatively, a Special Interest Group can make the proposal to the Special Interest Group Committee Chair who will ask the approval to the Executive Committee. In any case, a precise working plan must be formulated and periodically updated.

A budget of 5000 euros per year is allocated to each Working Group for periodical meetings.
