The various working groups will inevitably take directions that expand upon and vary from paths outlined in the application (which is encouraged and essential to keeping the COST relevant and helpful to stakeholders). Supporting Group 4 will provide the role of ensuring that those tasks are working toward a complementary set of goals and at-large objectives outlined in the MoU. For instance, the assessment methods developed by WG1 should be employed by all the activities of the other WGs. The group will also serve to ensure that all participants, particularly the ECIs, are engaged in appropriate capacity building activities and achieving the goals as stated in the MoU.
