Efforts outside of the Working Groups are achieved by three groups of members:
- the Management Committee (MC),
- the Core Group (CG),
- the Outreach, Exploitation and Dissemination Coordinations (OED).
The MC is the main decision body and is composed of up to two representatives of each of the COST countries participating in the Action. The MC delegates part of its tasks to the Core Group which is composed of members assuming special roles within the Action such as the WG-Leaders. Finally, the Outreach, Exploitation and Dissemination Coordinations are three additional groups aiming at supporting Working Groups with regards to transversal tasks.
