The main objective of the Science Policy Dialogue Think Tanks is to co-develop key recommendations in collaboration with linked projects and achieve validation through the engagement with policy actors. The MSP4BIO project in fact aims at collaborating with sister projects to jointly communicate scientific outputs to policy makers in a simple form and to scrutinize them against policy coherence criteria. The Think Tank meetings have initially involved relevant experts and scientists and in a second stage they will also include policy stakeholders at the EU and regional seas level. The Think Tanks also represent an effective way to coordinate among different projects on the engagement with key policy stakeholders, in order to maximise effective engagement processes and to reduce “stakeholder fatigue”.
