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