Task groups

The goal of task groups is to formulate advice about specific tasks or to prepare national meetings. Task groups which are active at this moment are 'Data Stewardship' and 'Pseudonymization and Key Files Management'.


The task groups are compiled on an ad-hoc basis and work on compact sub issues that can be solved at short notice (1-6 weeks).

As soon as a task is announced, members of the pool of experts can register to take part and enlist the help of other parties, experts or consultants.  

Means of mutual communication and contact with the advisory group are decided.

Each task group is supervised by a process counsellor/scrum master who helps in planning and realizing the project.


Task groups are compiled on an ad-hoc basis per sub-problem or issue. For the composition of a task group, candidates are drawn from the pool of experts. These are supplemented with experts from the work field of advisory group members or experts from the pool.    

The task groups are supervised by a scrum master/process counsellor/consultant.


The task group members are motivated to work on a subject by a need to know, questions from their own institute and work environment or their daily work. The incentive here is: ‘this topic can also be applied in my own work environment’.


The task groups work on small-scale sub-problems/issues that can be solved in one to six weeks. The task group members are available for an intensive, limited time span (‘pressure cooker sessions’ model).

On the basis of a pitch (the pitch by the advisory group for the pool of experts) the task groups draw up a project plan that specifies: the goal of the project, composition of the task group, desired result, planning and budget.
