ATC Research Group

The ATC Research Group meets 4 times a year and is currently reviewing its Terms of Reference. Its main aim is to promote research in TCs. Recently it held a joint Strategy meeting with the Community of Communities to bring together researchers and others from the different types of TC, to hear about their research and to develop a coordinated and coherent Research Strategy for TCs.

What research have you done/are you doing?

We urge you to actively encourage the access to TC research by making available past and current research carried out in your TC. This will be a valuable resource to those interested in or planning their own research. To register your research proposals and projects past, present and future please use the form here.
