The ERNCIP work programme addresses several thematic areas (TA), as identified by the ERNCIP sponsors, i.e. the European Commission and the Member States. The work is being undertaken by specific thematic working groups, each led by a coordinator. A work programme (see Projected Objectives) will be established by each thematic group (TG) and approved by the ERNCIP Office.


Given the generality with which the ERNCIP sponsors can propose the thematic areas, identify and priorities within the scope of that thematic area.


The thematic areas are at the core of ERNCIP and will provide the principal means for achieving the aims of ERNCIP.
