The annual meeting between ICES and Requesters of ICES Advice (MIRIA) took place online in January 2021. Most of the organisations with formal advice agreements and memoranda of un-derstanding, and a number of ICES member countries participated. This was the first time that MIRIA took place through remote means. 
The meeting covered a review of the advice and advice processes in 2020, the new guide to ICES advice, the measures taken to assess and mitigate the disruption caused by COVID-19 pandemic, a discussion and survey on the ecosystem and fisheries overviews, and future advice needs of the requesters. During Any Other Business the issue of survivability of discards was discussed. 
The discussions and information shared are used by ACOM to ensure the saliency of the science and the appropriateness of the advice to the needs of the requesters. Bilateral meetings with in-dividual organisations and member countries also take place in the environs of MIRIA. These are not reported in this report.

The Annual Meeting of ICES Expert Group Chairs (WGCHAIRS)  provides  an  opportunity  for  chairs of all ICES working groups to share experiences and ideas, co-ordinate work, meet with their  Steering  Group,  Advisory  Committee  and  Science  Committee  chairs,  and  highlight  any  support they need from the ICES network. The group also provides participants with updates on developments in the network and their implications, as well as opportunities to identify fu-ture science priorities and plans for advisory products.  This 2021 meeting report contains advice-related, science-related and cross-cutting  issues.  The  meeting in 2021 included an extra day for incoming chairs, covering an introduction on the re-sponsibilities for chairs, an introduction to the guidelines for ICES groups and a forum to express expectations and ask questions for the chairs. Advice topics that are addressed include the bench-mark  system,  reference  points,  the  impact  of  COVID-19  on  the  advice  delivery,  an  update  on  Viewpoints and the advisory work plan for 2021. Science topics that are addressed included an overview on hybrid and online meetings, open sessions and an update of the ASC 2021, an over-view  on  the  new  resolution  forms  and  the  database,  an  update  on  reporting  needs,  an  intro-duction to the new library system that will be launched later in 2021 and an update on science highlights, dissemination and communications. Cross-cutting topics included an update on ex-ecutive summaries, an introduction to the guide to ICES advice, an update on Ecosystem Over-views, gender and inclusivity in ICES – reflection on “Picture a Scientist” and relevance for Ex-pert  Group  work,  and  an  introduction  to  Meeting  Etiquette  and  Code  of  Conduct.  A  group  of  Ex-pert Group chairs organised the second half of the joint day with a presentation by Kenneth Rose on challenges of communicating science in today's social and political climate and discus-sion on the topic in breakout groups. The day concluded with a social activity, an escape room game.Key actions resulting from chairs’ insights are to establish an easy access to the items relevant for Expert Group chairs from the guidelines for ICES groups, e.g. as a FAQ webpage, adding the example of an executive summary for stock assessment groups to the guidelines for ICES groups, provide  social  media  guidelines  for  ICES  community  in  order  to  avoid  any  violation  of  copy-rights, GDPR matters, or privacy.
