The Activities of the Society include:

Working groups

In order to support international co-operation and collaboration the EWRS supports 'working groups' of scientists in specific disciplines within weed science. These working groups aim to foster collaborative experimentation as well as organising international meetings. The structure of the working groups is continually under review to ensure the greatest scientific benefit and the best use of resources.
