Report from the SWG workshop.

First in-person meeting of the SWG, 31 January - 1 February 2017, Paris France

Draft agenda for the first in-person meeting of the SWG (to follow).

Second in-person meeting of the SWG, 30 - 31 May 2017

Discussion at the SWG meeting focused on a draft high-level strategy for the new organization, following the feedback from ISSC and ICSU members on the initial draft circulated at the end of March. As highlighted in a recent webinar with ICSU and ISSC members, the strategy will be further developed with reference to agenda -setting, particularly to expand on how the organization’s members and leadership will be involved in selecting priorities. Members of the SWG also worked to strengthen proposals on the new organization’s regional presence, on relationships with members, and on developing an impactful communications strategy.
