About Working Groups

 

ALLEA Working Groups

ALLEA Working Groups are advisory bodies of temporary duration concerned with specific issues and providing advice and guidance on matters to do with science, science management and science policy. Their services may vary from advising the Steering Committee to producing memoranda, reports or best practice tools published under the auspices of ALLEA.

The Steering Committee decides about the establishment of a Working Group. The chair of a Working Group is typically member of a Member Academy, nominated and approved by the Steering Committee. Members of a Working Group are preferably members of a Member Academy, and are appointed jointly by the chair and the President.

ALLEA Permanent Working Groups are concerned with prolonged issues of policy and advice in respect of science. Their services may vary from advising the General Assembly to taking a stance or issuing a declaration to producing a memorandum or brochure with the General Assembly’s endorsement, or even a monograph or collected papers published by the Permanent Working Group under the auspices of ALLEA.

Permanent Working Groups are instituted by the General Assembly when so proposed by the Steering Committee. The chair and members of a Permanent Working Group are member Academicians of a Member Academy, nominated and approved by the Steering Committee.
