Start new working group

In addition to our current working groups, the Council invites new activities to enrich the scientific program of EAPS and to involve more members, more actively in EAPS.

There is no preferred format for these working groups, and proposals can take any shape, such as a research network, a trailblazing workshop (at EPC or elsewhere) or other. Proposals for new activities (a short 1-2 page description indicating objective, scope, title, steering committee membership) should be sent to and will be considered by the council on a rolling basis.

All activities will have to be approved by the council and will have a specific mandate (term) and focus to be jointly decided by the EAPS council and the initiators. Activities will regularly be reviewed by the council and reported to the general assembly. EAPS facilities (website and mailing) will be made available for these activities, and the council will also consider to provide some financial support. It should be kept in mind however that this financial support will always be limited and will never fully cover the cost of an activity (seed money). Institutional backing of the new initiatives including sponsoring and/or hosting of events and activities, either by EAPS Affiliated Institutions or other institutions, is strongly recommended also with a view to sustainability.
