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.

Establishing a Stakeholder Core Group (SCG). A SCG of about 40 organisations will be convened, drawn from suggestions from all SUSFANS WP leaders. Balance across stakeholder communities, food systems areas, countries and gender will be paramount. This SCG will spearhead the stakeholder interaction across WPs 1-5, with WP11, and with other WPs as appropriate. Other members will therefore be co-opted as needed.
