The SIOS working groups are the backbone of SIOS linking the SIOS member institutions to the Knowledge Centre. The SDMS working group (SDMSWG) has already been active for some time and two further groups commence their work during this summer.
The first meeting of the Research Infrastructure Coordination Committee (RICC) took place on Monday 12 June 2017 at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute at Blindern, Oslo. It was a useful and productive meeting where many topics were discussed in relation to developing the SIOS Access Programme and RI database. More information about RICC, including the current membership, may be found here.
The next working group to get underway will be the Science Optimisation Advidory group (SOAG). Their first meeting will be held at Svalbard Science Centre on 7 July 2017. We look forward to welcoming all SOAG members to Longyearbyen!
