INCA Groups

A lot of the work that INCA carries out is organised through a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and other workstreams focussing on specific areas of interest to Members. 

You can register your interest in specific groups by registering via the links below.

In general, participation in the Special Interest Groups is available only to contacts of INCA Member organizations, and you will need to be logged in to this site in order to access web content about them. If you don't have a user account and you work with an INCA member organisation you can apply for one.
