Council 2010 (in its meeting of 19-20 March) adopted a proposal to create a Strategy Working Group (SWG) to thoroughly review the EPS and propose a new plan for its mission and strategy. The EPS SWG had the mandate to deeply review the structure, governance, organization, functioning and achievements of EPS, and outline a possible realistic strategy for its future. Exchange and consultation with EPS members (MSs, IMs and AMs), as well as with Divisions and Groups, are an integral part of the review process.
