Activities & Groups

This section provides information on our current two operational (OGs) and six Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and related collaborative arrangements. Since 2014, the Collaboration has established a number of operational and special interest subgroups to provide expert advice, support its strategic aspirations, while enabling professional development and experiential exchange within various regional professional communities of practice.
