Introduction & Help

The Forum enables a community (e.g. committee, working group, project group etc.) geographically spread across Europe (and beyond) to have a private space on the Internet where they can share information, documents, participate in discussions and various other functionalities.

This private space is called an "Interest Group" or IG. The access and navigation in this virtual space is done via any Internet browser and as in any working group, committee or project team, one member plays the role of chairman or moderator; in the Forum it is called an IG Administrator.
