STRUCTURE AND PARTICIPANTS


Organisation

The implementation of a COST Action is supervised and coordinated by a Management Committee (MC). The MC is composed of no more than two representatives of each signatory country. National delegates are representatives of their country, not of their institution.

The Science Officer at COST Secretariat is Ms. Melae Langbein.

The Steering Committee consists of the Management Committee chairperson (Prof. Erkki Tomppo) and Vice-Chairperson (Dr. Klemens Schadauer) together with the Workgroup leaders and deputy leaders (Dr. Emil Cienciala, Prof. Gherardo Chirici, Dr. Adrian Lanz, Prof. Göran Stċhl, Dr. Claude Vidal, Dr. Susanne Winter).

Three Workgroups have been established to work on different aspects of the action.
