Thematic Working Groups

Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) are the core instruments of the initiative to foster scientific exchange between the partners. TWGs are established to discuss, plan and work on innovative and challenging cross-centre and cross-program topics. They call for, evaluate, identify and chaperone projects at the partner sites in areas of high interest and technical challenge. TWGs are, thus, formed by the expert scientists at the partner sites that are themselves involved in the drug research projects and exchange their respective expertise and experiences. TWGs report to the SC on their meetings and activities. Currently five TWGs are active.
