The Operational Group is chaired by the Project Coordinator (Serena Scollen). It will bring together WP leaders and 1+MG Working Group (WG) leaders to monitor the project progress. It will report and make recommendations to the Governing Board on decisions that have a significant impact for the B1MG project. For non-significant decisions the Group will be the decision body. Minutes of the monthly meetings are distributed to the Board and the General Assembly, and when feasible the Group's meetings are co-located with 1+MG Coordination Team meetings.
