The CRS organisation is simple and effective. Members have equal rights to bring forward ideas, write proposals, vote for new projects and participate at various levels in working groups.
In June the members discuss the technical progress in the working groups and ideas for new projects at the Open Meeting. At the Annual general Meeting in December, the proposals for new projects are presented and the members decide by a democratic voting which projects can start in the next year.
A Steering Group consisting of rotating members monitors the overall progress of work, stimulates discussions and proposes the long term course – in the end, the members decide. Logistics and archiving of reports are handled by the secretariat.
