GAP2 is forging a stronger and deeper collaboration between stakeholders, scientists, and policy makers, who together are working towards sustainable fisheries for Europe. Partners in GAP2 are achieving this through: (i) influencing activities that promote and facilitate stakeholder participation in fisheries research and debate on governance, and (ii) demonstration and evaluation activities, where stakeholders, scientists and policy makers share their knowledge through learning-by-doing and critical reflection.
Spanning Europe from Sweden to Spain, the project’s 13 participatory research case studies serve as models of Responsible Research and Innovation , showing how stakeholders and scientists can best learn from one another.
Collectively, GAP2 scientists and fishers are making a difference to fisheries research and policy on a local, national, and regional scale. GAP2’s outcomes provide a concrete realisation of Science in Society objectives for engaging society in research in ways that provide better conditions for collective choices on scientific issues that affect the lives and livelihoods of EU citizens.
