The TERENA PR Initiative has started the process to form a Task Force (TF-PR) to promote collaboration between research networking organisations in Europe in the areas of public relations and information dissemination through activities at PR Manager / Information Officer-level.

The proposed Terms of Reference for TR-PR can be found here (pdf).

This BoF session will discuss of the Term of Reference and the proposed deliverables. Attendees are invited to discuss activities for the TF-PR and other PR and communication matters of NRNs. It is planned to present the Terms of Reference to the TEENA Executive Committee at their meeting in May 2003.

Other topics will include how the NRNs can coordinate announcements from and for international events and will give attention to,for example, streaming events to the whole academic community in Europe.
