Action Work Structure
-----
The Action started in June 2001 and is scheduled for a duration of four years.

The Action work is organised in three working groups, each being subdivided into sub-groups on demand.

Each WG is co-ordinated by an elected work group leader who is also responsible for the exchange and co-operation with other groups and the whole Management Committee, in order to achieve convergence in the results of both the Working Groups and the whole Action.
