Subcommittees and Societies

Each session during the first month of the Traineeship the Liaison Committee coordinates elections of the new Trainees' Committee, which will represent the trainees during the rest of the traineeship period.


During the first month subocommittees (Events, Networking, Communications, and Careers) and societies will be formed.


Subcommittees work directly under the Trainees' Committee to organize social, careers, and networking events and to manage the TC communication channels.


Societies are independent, but can apply funding from the Trainees' Committee. Each society has a coordinator who liaises with the Trainees' Committee.

Recent Blue Book sessions have included among others the following societies. These societies can be continued (re-established).


However, societies on any other topics can be formed. The starting point is to find a group of trainees interested on the topic and select a coordinator(s) for the group. New societies have a chance to present themselves at the societies evening held during the first 2 weeks of the traineeship.
