An agricultural research network is a group of individuals or institutions linked together by a commitment to collaborate in solving or addressing a common agricultural problem, or set of problems, and to use existing resources more effectively. Collaborative research networks involve joint planning and conduct of research to address common research interests. A Working Group, also called a subnetwork, consists of a group of scientists who share a common interest, and are committed to collectively address a high priority regional problem, and to share their research results with others. Working Groups coordinate and stimulate cooperative research by pooling expertise from both developing and developed countries, international research centers, and specialized research laboratories and institutions, to work together on a common platform as equal partners to find quick answers. Working Groups use existing staff and facilities, and avoid duplication of effort. The advantages of Working Groups (WG) in terms of their ability to carry out collaborative research within a network is discussed with special reference to Botrytis Gray Mold (BGM) of Chickpea Working Group.
