WP 6: Stakeholder interaction and scenario review

General Information

The overall objective of Work Package 6 is to ensure SUSFANS products are of optimal value to a balanced range of end users by building and maintaining a solid and effective interaction with a broad stakeholder community throughout the life of the project.  It is of major importance to build and maintain a relation with the stakeholders throughout the project involving them in a proactive manner. This provides added value to SUSFANS work, particularly when considering the range of the disciplines that will be engaged.

The Work Package will establish how existing European-level, food-related scenarios can best be used for foresight activities for European FNS.
