In the near future we schedule to develop:

  • a yearly Activities Plan,
  • an exclusive member area for exchange of information/data,
  • a regular update of the members/friends lists,
  • active links to social media,
  • a regional/national repository of good practices,
  • a strategic priority for engaging other disciplinary societies as well as less representing regions of the world.

General concept of the TG5 Cookbook:

  • The whole report will be about 50 pages
  • One editor per chapter
  • Invite also other experts to contribute
  • Only digital with e-link/downloadable from the Project website
  • Achieve sustainability (ie. beyond the project lifetime) through links to interested scientific communities.
