D2.1. Report on Stakeholder Mapping and Engagement Strategy

  • 1. EUREC


The report explains the objectives of the stakeholder engagement strategy in VERITY, provides an overview of the envisaged engagement activities in different work packages (WP) and related tasks, specifies the types of stakeholder engagement formats, and describes the criteria and determining factors for stakeholder mapping, including the distinction between stewards of trust and other relevant stakeholders. When developing the strategy, VERITY draws on findings from The BiodivERsA Stakeholder Engagement Handbook (Durham, Baker, Smith, Moore & Morgan, 2014) and the Guidebook for Socio- Economic Impact Assessment of Research Infrastructures by RIPATHS (Griniece et al., 2020), but also considers recent stakeholder engagement approaches and recommendations, for example from projects such as ROSiE (Lindemann, 2021) and ETHNA System (Häberlein, Mönig & Hövel 2021a).

The first section of the report explains what the stakeholder engagement strategy is and why stakeholder engagement is crucial for VERITY. In this context, the text highlights the transformation process within the ecosystem of trust and its actors. It also identifies potential risks and corresponding measures, which are further differentiated in subsequent chapters. Moreover, the text addresses the methods that were used to develop the stakeholder engagement strategy and explains which activities will be carried out in cooperation with other WPs. At this stage, it is discussed how the definition and selection criteria for stewards of trust and other relevant stakeholders were established. Subsequently, the report outlines how the stakeholder management in VERITY works, especially regarding diversity and consideration of factors such as gender, nationality, language, age, education, income, etc., and what the next steps will be. The report also shows how a mutual engagement strategy has been developed and what role the ADvisory and IMpact (ADIM) Board and Cluster will play in the project. The final section summarises how the stakeholder engagement strategy is helping VERITY to facilitate the transition from 'science for society' to 'science with and for society' (Owen, Macnaghten & Stilgoe, 2012).
