Joint Stakeholder Consultation Workshop, 12 February 2014, Brussels - Building a Science Policy Interface to support implementation of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive
One of the key tasks of the FP7 STAGES project is to develop a concrete proposal for a science policy interface (SPI) to support implementation of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) in the long-term. As part of this process, STAGES is conducting a stakeholder consultation to collect the views and needs of a broad range of MSFD stakeholders from science, industry, civil society, NGOs, and the national MSFD competent authorities and implementing agencies. An extensive on-line questionnaire survey has already been completed and STAGES is now organizing a Stakeholder Consultation Workshop. The workshop was planned as a joint activity with the FP7 DEVOTES project.
Discussion at the workshop focused on two aspects of the Science Policy interface:
