Task Teams

Task Teams are assembled to bring together people with specific interests and appropriate expertise to tackle issues that cross Node and/or Facility boundaries. 

Teams will assess particular issues, generally arising from IMOS Annual Planning Meetings, and where appropriate, develop projects to address them.
