BioMedIT Working Groups

Working Groups are tasked with developing and maintaining specific aspects of the BioMedIT Project. Members are made up of experts from across the BioMedIT Network.

BioMedIT interoperability working group (BIWG)

All technical interoperability in BioMedIT is driven by the BioMedIT interoperability working group (BIWG).
