TF-CPR: Task Force on Communications and Public Relations

The task force on Communications and Public Relations, TF-CPR, promotes collaboration between research and education networking organisations in Europe in the areas of communications, marketing and public relations, through activities at the level of Communications / PR Officers / Marketing Managers.

TF-CPR is the name of a task force previously known as the Task Force on Public Relations and Information Dissemination, TF-PR, which was first established under the auspices of TERENA on 1 October 2003. In September 2009, the name changed to TF-CPR, the Task Force on Communications and Public Relations, which participants agreed better reflects the broader nature of their activities. TF-CPR is operating with a renewed 2-year mandate, which started on 1 October 2011.

Aim

To exchange ideas, experiences, methods and techniques among research and education networking organisations in order to improve their communications with organisations and individuals that use their services, and with other organisations that are relevant for the research and education networking community.

Target group

The task force is open to staff of research and education networking organisations who have(or plan to have) communications, marketing and public relations tasks and who can offer the appropriate expertise, manpower, equipment or services. Participation is on a voluntary basis.

Meeting frequency

TF-CPR meets at least twice per year and also comes together at the TERENA Networking Conferences. Additional smaller meetings for specific subjects can be organised on an ad hoc basis.
