WG3. Objectives

The main aim of WG3 is to expand our existing network by attracting new members. WG3 is also responsible for reaching a global audience as well as decision makers.

WG3 coordinates the presence of the Task Force and Network in the social network media for viral communication of information.

News of this Action can be found in research-oriented media and worldwide social e-platforms (eg. LinkedIn and Twitter).

Up-to-date information on funding opportunities is also disseminated by WG3.
