„Running the network“: 

Symposion was created in 1992. Symposion is run by a steering committee agreed on at the annual meeting. The steering committee should:

• formulate and prepare strategies and activities for the network based on suggestions from previous annual meetings,

• plan the annual meeting together with the host institution representative,

• decide on membership issues,

• handle arising questions in between the meetings,

• manage the Symposion website and general communication within the network,

• appoint an acting chair.

The steering committee will meet as required. The steering committee members sit on a voluntary basis. The steering committee comprises of a minimum of 4 persons and each partner can be represented in the steering committee.

Symposion organises annual meetings for all members as a forum to develop future cooperation, projects and exchange experience.
