Working Groups

Internet search is much more than just technology, many disciplines play a role. That is why we have set up working groups for different areas – Tech, Awareness, Ethics, Legal, Economy and Applications. They develop visions and guidelines and connect the different (external) players from the Expert:innen network with each other.

It is above all the diversity and the commitment of the large community that drives the expert groups forward. In order to provide the necessary “glue” and to make progress in the external expert groups, (online) meet-ups and telephone conferences take place regularly.

Across disciplines, the Open Search Foundation organises scientific symposia and workshops, but its members also appear at external congresses.
