IIW Working Units

Focus areas of the 23 Technical Working Units can be divided generally into Processes, Structural Integrity and Industrial Applications, and Human Factors.

The Working Units operate as ‘think tanks’ and engines for technical progress, focusing on current challenges in industry and research, and developing technical output to proactively support these needs

One of the tremendous strengths of the IIW is the opportunity for seamless cooperation between the different focus groups, drawing together a broad spectrum of relevant experts from around the world to focus on particular issues.
