WG members are expected to participate in WG meetings (2-3 per year) in a European city: London, Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam or similar. In addition, WG members will review and contribute to the documents generated by the ETP, specifically the research and innovation roadmaps and the research and innovation topic recommendations presented to the European Commission in preparation for Horizon 2020 calls.
If your decisión on joining one working group is still not clear for you after going through this information then you may fill in ALICE membership application form first, then we can exchange directly and decide which Working Group/s fits better the interest and expertise of the members.
