From strategy to action:
How to make ICES Stakeholder Engagement Strategy work?

16–18 May 2023
ICES Headquarters, Copenhagen and online

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Join us for a workshop focused on the operationalization of ICES Stakeholder Engagement Strategy (SES). Building on the work of WKSHOES and the establishment of ICES SES in 2023, this workshop will identify the practical actions necessary to achieve the strategy's vision, and goals.

This workshop is essential for ICES and its advice requesters – and will help produce protocols and guidelines for effective and transparent stakeholder engagement with ICES community, whilst ensuring the independence and credibility of ICES science and advice.

WKSTIMP will bring together experts with knowledge in stakeholder participation, as well as a diverse set of stakeholders including members of the EU Advisory Councils, regional fisheries groups and environmental commissions, competent authorities of ICES member countries, observers, and other interested stakeholders.

Through this collaborative effort, WKSTIMP will identify practical implementation options, draft elements of the stakeholder engagement implementation plan, and discuss appropriate monitoring and evaluation processes to ensure accountability and continuous organizational learning on stakeholder engagement.

Chaired by Marta Ballesteros (Spain), Alexandre Rodriguez (Spain), and Ashley Wilson (UK), the workshop will present a report on the development of a stakeholder engagement implementation plan and any further steps to ACOM and SCICOM by the end of June.

The workshop will be split into two parts. The first part will take place on 16 May online, followed by two days of meetings at ICES Headquarters in Copenhagen on 17–18 May

A hybrid session will take place on 18 May for those participants who may be unable to travel to Copenhagen but would like the opportunity to provide feedback on preliminary workshop outputs. As in all ICES meetings, the working language will be English but Spanish and French simultaneous interpretation can be provided for the online sessions upon request.

Registration is required

Please register your interest by sending a message to Jan de Haes, informing if you will participate in person or online.

Note: If the workshop is oversubscribed, ICES reserves the right, in consultation with the workshop chairs, to select the final workshop participants based on their expertise, gender and geographical distribution.​​​​​ Confirmation of attendance will be sent on the 1st May.
