Working Groups

The working groups support the core participant activities of the Consortium. A participant can join one or more based on their interests. Each working group will determine their own activities and work plan. They will be assisted with locating funding, creating a timeline, and tracking their activity.  The groups will be formed during late 2017 and early 2018.
