Thematic Groups

The Thematic Groups are core areas to develop ALICE mission and vision and develop activities in an autonomous way. They are responsible for the preparation of the ALICE documents such as, Position Papers, Strategic Research and Innovation Agendas and Research and Innovation Roadmaps identifying research gaps to be proposed to the Executive Group as potential input for the Horizon Europe Programme.

They are also leading a particular programme and activity field supporting the implementation of ALICE roadmaps.

Current Thematic Groups:

Working rules

Workshops and webinars are organized 2/3 per year and off-line communication is kept on regular basis. Additionally, specific activity fields develop autonomous online and on-site activities. For more information on Programmes and Activity fields, check ALICE brief presentation available in this link.


The Thematic Groups consist of experts coming from the ALICE membership. The Thematic Groups are managed and chaired by Thematic Group Chairs, selected by ALICE Plenary.


Participation in a Thematic Group is open to any ALICE member that has proven expertise in the field. Members can appoint external experts to participate in TGs.
