BIST Working Groups

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology relies for its coordination on a number of individuals and groups, including a dedicated small core team, a Coordination Committee involving the Directors of the BIST centres and the BIST Director General, and 13 working groups to facilitate collaboration, as well as plan and execute joint activities for the BIST Community.  Working groups meet throughout the year to drive the BIST agenda on their respective areas of activity.
