BiodivERsA draft stakeholder engagement toolkit
BiodivERsA aims to improve cooperation between scientists and stakeholders by establishing best practices for engagement (task 2.1); this is being achieved by developing a toolkit that will support research project teams to better plan and engage with non-academic stakeholders, including policy makers.
Following several phases of consultation and development, the toolkit is now close to completion. In order to ensure it is fit-for-purpose and the content is effective in achieving its objectives BiodivERsA are seeking further comment on the final draft of the toolkit. They welcome input from potential users, including stakeholders and stakeholder groups, on how the document could be further improved before final publication.
The consultation is open until February 16th, 2014.
