Executive Summary

The SCAR Structural Review Group (RG) solicited information from the SCAR community via an online survey. The current structure of SCAR science groups was reviewed and models from other science groups were considered. A summary of survey responses was presented and discussed. The group reviewed the Standing Scientific Groups (SSGs) (including the structure of their subsidiary bodies), Scientific Research Programmes (SRPs), Standing Committees and Advisory Groups and other groups (Humanities, Social Sciences), the SCAR meeting structure, and operation of the SCAR Secretariat. This paper provides a summary of key points and recommendations from the Review Group discussions.
