Interest Groups

Scientific work and joint data analysis takes place in interest groups, which generally focus on a specific area of outcomes. As a part of APIC lean and informal structure, each interest group agrees on their own scientific objectives and on policies and practical issues related to project management, data security, publication and authorship.
