Core Group Members

The Core Group of SOURDOMICS is a board with leading and coordination roles, and is formed by members elected from the Management Committee structure. It comprises the Chairs, Working Group leaders (WGL) and the Dissemination, Communication and Exploitation Board coordinators. It also integrates the Science and Administrative COST Officers. The Core Group are in the basis of all strategic and operational measures undertaken in SOURDOMICS, which decisions are further discussed with all Our Partners, i.e. all Management Committee (MC) and non-MC members. Most of the decisions are further voted electronically (e-vote) or in person by the MC. You can find complementary information in Parties and Management Structure of the COST Action SOURDOMICS, and also here in Our Partners.

The Chairs coordinate and manage all the activities and have the necessary overall vision of the COST Action SOURDOMICS to make the appropriate linkage between different Working Groups, DCEB coordinators and, in general, all members. They interact with all members of SOURDOMICS, although WG leaders makes an important bridge between Chairs and WG members.
