One of the first steps that should be taken to reach active collaboration among a group of organizations is to create a suitable relationship scenario with trust and security which allows a meeting point where professionals with different background but similar objectives could interchange knowledge and experiences.

Activities, sectors and problems shared among different people, usually generates very enriching discussions. If this is enforced by workgroups formed by professionals with specific common objectives will dramatically boost the results achieved by the collaboration initiatives.

From the center, a series of thematic work groups have been defined in order to encourage our sponsors and active members to collaborate and to establish objectives and develop activities for the members to increase their knowledge and experience while developing interesting initiatives.

The topics of the workgroups is defined by the members and sponsors themselves, and surely will be adjusted as the activities are being developed, the market matures or new problems arise.

Currently, there are four knowledge groups:
