The FishMPABlue2 project has created an advisory panel composed of some policy making institutions at national and international level. This body aims to act as an internal evaluator and to support the scaling up and replication of the project achievements.
The project foresees the organization of 3 workshops (once a year, managed as round tables) of the advisory panel, where the project achievements will be presented and assessed by participants (project partners and the associates – all members of the advisory panel).
Members of the advisory panel are requested to fulfill mainly 2 tasks:
· Receive annual scientific reports issued by the project, and send feedback.
· Discuss project achievements and propose improvements to future project actions.
The first advisory panel workshop was held in Zagreb on 17 May 2017. The lead partner (Federparchi) presented the main goals and expected results of the project, and the role and expected inputs of the advisory panel.
Other partners presented the testing and monitoring activities and explained the main foreseen outputs and activities of the transferring and capitalizing activities which will start in 2018.
