Collaborative tools

​As the need for electronic working methods has increased, the study groups secretariat has made available a number of collaborative tools that will allow the collaborators and participants to the meetings to efficiently share their work and views between meetings.

As usual, the secretariat is available for any questions or advice:



​The ITU-D Study Groups e-Forum is available here.  The username and password are different from your TIES ones.  Usernames and passwords issued during the last study period are still valid.  If you do not still have a username/password, just let us know.

Tutorial videos are available inside the e-Forum to show you how to use it.

Management Team collaborative site


​A new collaborative site for the Management Teams of both Study Groups is being created.  As soon as more information is available, we will update this section.

Mailing lists


​Mailing lists for each Study Group, as well as for each Question within the Study Groups have been created.  You need to subscribe and manage your subscription to any list that you may find of interest simply using your TIES account.  You may only send an email to the subscribers of a list if you are a subscriber yourself.  You will then also be able to access the list's archives.  Following you will find the main links:
