Joining International Collaborative Tasks
IEA SHC tasks are collaborative projects that involve participants from at least five member countries. Tasks generally operate for three to five years under the leadership of an Operating Agent who manages the project. Task meetings generally occur twice each year to report on progress and plan actions. Australian industry or researchers wishing to participate in these collaborative projects need to commit to providing the time and resources to undertake the project and attend meetings (teleconferencing is sometimes available) and obtain the endorsement of the Australian Executive Committee member.
