Thematic groups contribute with their expertise on specific topics related to their remit. They operate on an activity-driven, self-organising and voluntary basis. They work under the LERU flag if they inform the LERU Office of the envisaged activities and report back on them. The range of possible activities is wide and open-ended, as long as they fall within the scope of LERU’s mission. Individual LERU members are to take the lead of these groups. LERU Office doesn’t provide administrative support for thematic groups.
Thematic groups are led by a steering group consisting of three to five members and a chair.
