Task groups

The purpose of task groups is to formulate advice about specific tasks or to prepare national meetings..

Task groups are compiled per submitted issue on an ad-hoc basis by the advisory group. For the composition of a task group, candidates are drawn from the pool of experts, in casu from those who react to the specific calls for participation. These experts are supplemented with experts from the work field of advisory group members or experts from the pool. Task groups may be supported by an external 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’.
