The High Level Group of Scientific Advisors (HLG), which was set up in the context of the Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) of the European Commission has been tasked by the Commission to provide advice based on scientific evidence on the issue of food from the oceans. In relation to this, a meeting will be conducted with relevant stakeholder representatives who are mostly from civil society and businesses. The objective is to present the main draft elements of the advice under consideration by the HLG and to gather the views of stakeholders.
The committee is inviting all relevant organisations to have one representative attend the meeting, which will take place from 11:00-17:00 at Albert Borschette Congress Centre. For interested participants to prepare themselves, it is suggested that they lookat the SAM website for relevant information. Information on the scientific Expert Workshop in Brussels held on 14 September 2017 will prove particularly relevant.
