Presently over 80 participants from 30 European countries are involved in the EUdaphobase COST Action. They are organised into seven Working Groups (WGs) set up to best tackle the scientific objectives along a workflow from data structures and data collation, software development, to assessment-tool development and data users.
The Management Committee (MG) consists of two national delegates from each participating country and is responsible for the overall coordination of the Action and regular interaction with WG leaders. European Agencies and non-COST “Near Neighbour Countries” are non-voting MC observers. A Core group (CG) composed of the Action’s chair and co-chair, the WG chairs and co-chairs, as well as the STSM, scientific dissemination and international-cooperation officers – is responsible for initiating and coordinating activities, submitting proposals to the MC for approval of activities such as short-term scientific missions (STSMs) and budget allocations.
