Partners Continue and Extent Stakeholders Engagement

The engagement of stakeholders is an important part of this project to facilitate a responsible innovative process. The CHIC project researcher continue their fruitful exchange with the CHIC Stakeholder Advisory Group (SAG), with SAG members participating in project meetings and conference calls. There have been two large activities during this reporting period: the first of two planned EU-level Stakeholder Consultations and the second activity was the development and application of a Multi-Criteria Assessment (MCA) instrument.

The EU-level Stakeholder Consultation took place on 6 October 2021 and brought together 15 project members and 30 stakeholders from various areas, which are part of the regulation and use of New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) in Europe. The MCA was conducted via an online questionnaire to investigate stakeholder views on NGT related issues. It focused on what factors relevant for social acceptability of NGTs. The data collection ended on 7 November 2021 and delivered 38 complete questionnaires reflecting a return rate of ca. 40%.
