The eight intergovernmental organisations involved in EIROforum have extensive expertise in large infrastructures relying on high-technology instrumentation. In the general context of integrated instrumentation systems, the Instrumentation Thematic Working Group develops its activity around two main areas:
- Exploring the fields of expertise of the EIROs, and identify areas where cooperation would bring clear added value.
- Fostering an efficient information exchange across their organisations by means of specific and dedicated tools such as schools, workshops and databases. While large audience conferences are organised mainly according to disciplines (synchrotron radiation, fusion, astronomy etc.), these dedicated events will be built up to encourage more targeted networking within the EIROs.
