The COST project depends on the enthusiasm and participation of all the working group members. A member of each country sits on the management committee which meets annually to set the agenda for the coming year.
The agenda is primarily driven by:
- Working Group 1 leader: Renzo Kottmann
- Working Group 2 leader: Chris Quince
- Working Group 3 leader: Alice McHardy
- Working Group 4 leader: Eva Lindstrom and Dana Ofiteru
- Working Group 5 leader: George Kowalchuk
- Short Term Scientific Missions Manager: Dr. Emilio O. Casamayor
