Committees

As a close link to the industry, and as the link between WAN-IFRA's current work and the Board, the WAN-IFRA committees of members participate in the continuous development of the association. The committees are dedicated to supporting and advising WAN-IFRA in its activities in areas such as research, events, trainings and standardisation and thus participating in shaping the future of our industry.
