Development of Action Plan for Mobilisation
February 2014 / September 2014
WP 3 will bring together representatives from the Area teams (WP 2), the Blue Society expert group (WP 5), the Advisory Panel and other stakeholders at a European level to select one cross cutting challenge (and sub-challenges within) from all the co-authored knowledge identified in WP 2 and WP 5. The final societal challenge will be decided through a Consensus Workshop where representatives of the stakeholders present at the consultation process will have the final decision. From the results of the workshop, and in accordance with the action plan new innovative tools and actions will be developed.
This work package aims to ensure a deep and wide-ranging engagement of stakeholders from across Europe in WP 4, with a particular focus on industry and policy makers. Other European bodies engaged in similar work will be involved, as for example the international business network, World Business Council for Sustainable Development, which has members in different countries and also involves national and European authorities.
