Activities

The Study Committees (SC) and the Technical Committee of CIGRE are the main players in the technical activities of CIGRE. 16 SCs exist since the reorganization in 2002 and are governed by precise operative rules (Terms of Reference for their studies).
Basic responsibility of the SCs is to carry out studies on topical issues of their domain. Results are published and made available to CIGRE members as well as non members. In its work a SC relies on Advisory and Working Groups. The SCs play a leading role in the Sessions and Symposia held by CIGRE and also organize their own events: Colloquia, Tutorials, and Workshops.

The activities of the SCs are coordinated by the Technical Committee, lead by the Chairman, who represents the Administrative Council of CIGRE.
