The IAMC works with and through other organizations, including both member organizations and external organizations. In addition to communications and coordination, the SSC is the point of contact for partnerships and collaborations.
Member organizations may propose to undertake activities that benefit the community and the IAMC may choose to recommend those activities to its members, or the AIM team may choose to undertake a coordinated exercise consistent with the broader objectives of the community. Or, alternatively, the IAMC may wish to encourage one of its members to undertake activities that further critical research goals.
The IAMC may also team with other organizations (e.g. AIMES) to undertake programs of mutual interest.
Finally, the IAMC may also work with external organizations such as for example, the IPCC.
