The CCM Sounding Board

The CCM Sounding Board was born from the desire to compare ourselves with others – with people who live and work in realities that are different from ours – and also through international co-operation, giving us ideas and different points of view to reflect on. Established in the first half of 2017, the CCM’s Sounding Board meets around twice each year.
