Since 2002 different groups of scientists from different European countries have requested the EGF to act as a working group under the umbrella of EGF. This initiative was supported by the Executive Committee. Currently there are four EGF Working Groups on the following topics:
The Working Groups report to each EGF General Meeting and, more recently, on the EGF Website.
The workshops in combination with EGF conferences will be announced on the respective event websites.
