WG1: Co-ordinating group for the action

Working Group 1 (WG1) is the co-ordinating group for the action. It has specific responsibilities for:

    • Management / oversight of all work towards delivery.
    • Co-ordination of actions towards efficiency / effectiveness.
    • Network development during action and towards sustainability.
    • Monitoring of participation in the network / action ensuring mutual training in perspectives, disciplines and methods.

The Chair and Vice-Chair of the action lead WG1.  In order to achieve its brief, the group members include leaders and co-leaders of the four other working groups as well as horizontal leaders and other action participants. WG1 activities include launching the action, action membership, and creating a schedule for future action Management Committee meetings.  The group is also responsible for coordinating national and European-level mapping of family support stakeholders and developing a set of founding principles to guide the action and its research.  WG1 supports other WG leaders and horizontal leaders in implementing networking tools and in the delivery of action outputs. It works closely with WG5 to ensure coordination of dissemination activities.  Alongside the ongoing planning and coordinating work, WG1 will be responsible for the final report on EuroFam-Net sustainability.
