The AEC Preparatory Working Group members work on the preparation of AEC events on voluntary basis. The AEC Preparatory Working Groups are all formed by coopting active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the groups, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions.

Working Group members are financially supported by their home institutions, which cover their travel and accommodation expenses to the working group meetings and to the actual event.
