TIDES Working Groups
Work is organized within five thematic Working Groups (WGs), with strong interaction and integration among them. All Working Groups are open and interactive, and include specialists who identify the most relevant open issues and animate discussion at the meetings — but also between meetings — to identify new approaches, and catalyze new research directions.
The Working Groups (WG) are an essential element for carrying out the activities of the Action.

Training Schools within the framework of the Action topic are aimed at:
– Widening the knowledge of the Action activities.
– Providing intensive training on a new and emerging subject
– Offering familiarisation with new softwares and methods.
Duration of TIDES Training School is normally one week. Training Schools are not intended to provide general training or education: participants are typically young researchers from across Europe: the subjects are advanced, leading-edge research topics.
Short Term Scientific Misson are exchange visits between researchers involved in a COST Action, allowing scientists to visit an institution or laboratory in another COST country. They are aimed at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants'institutions or laboratories. Successful applicants receive a fixed grant of up to €2500 for their overall expenses.
Working Group meeting
WG meetings focus their work on achieving the scientific and/or technological objectives of the COST Action as set out in the MoU.
Core Group meeting
The Core group consists of the COST Action Chair, Vice Chair, Working Group leaders, STSM coordinator, Training Schools Coordinator, and Grant Holder Scientific Representative. A CG meeting serves to steer the overall strategy direction of the COST Action in line with the objectives set out in the MoU.
Management Committee Meeting
The purpose of a MC meeting is to coordinate and organise the Action's scientific and networking activities in line with the objectives specified in both the Action's MoU and the approved Work and Budget Plans.
