working groups for knowledge society

Each forum is able to set up a certain number of working groups focusing on specific policy issues. Each working group has a specific remit and tasks, for example preparing a position paper on a particular topic, or managing activities such as a European project or campaign.

Each working group consists of individuals, nominated by member cities, who are considered as having relevant knowledge and expertise. Each working group is chaired by a member city, which is also responsible for reporting back to the relevant forum on the results achieved.
