Working Groups concentrate the intellectual efforts of a team of experts during intense week meetings resulting in collaborative outcomes to achieve the DataONE goals. The DataONE Leadership Team determines the subject areas where Working Groups are needed, selects two Working Group leaders, and works with those chairs to define an initial charter for what the Working Group will accomplish. The chairs then work with the Leadership Team to select a balanced group of individuals to make up the Working Group. DataONE provides collaboration resources, travel funds for meetings, and logistical support for Working Group activities towards the defined goals.

The current Working Groups are listed on, along with links to the activities of each Working Group. If you're interested in participating, contact one of the Working Group leaders or use the contact form on the DataONE web site to express your interest.
