In Blue-Action the teams are working at different levels in stakeholder engagement. In the project we define direct stakeholders as the series of end-users who contribute directly to the co-design of climate services and information services, and who benefit directly from the project results. In Blue-Action WP5 “Developing and Valuing Climate Services and Information Services”, the five case studies have been involving several stakeholders in their work. Most of the stakeholders in the case studies are direct “beneficiaries” of the project in terms of EU funding, i.e. fully-fledged partners receiving Horizon 2020 funding for their activities in the project who contribute to the co-design of the climate and information services in this project. Additional indirect stakeholders are involved in the activities planned in WP8 “Communication, Dissemination, Engagement and Exploitation” and will also benefit from the co-designed products and services. The final way we involve societal stakeholders in the project is through our Societal Engagement Group. This is an advisory group to the project, whose role is double:

  • Support Blue-Action in opening up a dialogue between the represented communities and the project, for the project to receive critical feedback on development and results and how these can provide a feed from the communities’ existing agendas.
  • Act as an additional channel of communication for improving usage of data and information by the communities and organisations represented by the Societal Engagement Group members and enhancing climate adaptation.

In this deliverable we would like to report not only on the exchange and engagement with the SEG but also with the other stakeholders addressed by the five case studies and the WP8.
