BIST Working Groups

The working group structure of the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology is set up such that a number of working groups, comprised of both core members of the BIST team as well as members from the BIST centres, are responsible for specific projects within the focus areas of BIST. The coordination council is comprised of the BIST centres’ directors, who also meet directly with the working group members from their centres.

The working groups have an average of seven members that meet regularly throughout the year to discuss common projects and strategic visions for BIST.
