In determining the area and substance of the intern's work, the secretariat will take into account ongoing projects, the qualifications of the intern and the goals as expressed by the sponsoring institution or the intern. Interns will normally be requested to undertake tasks under the supervision of the Secretary of the Committee or the Scientific Officer.
