Stakeholder Engagement Task Group
Lead by Annette Scheepstra, RUG ()
The stakeholder task group within the EU Polar Cluster was established in early stages of the Cluster as there was a clear need to coordinate and collaborate in stakeholder activities conducted in Polar projects. As the number of EU Polar Cluster projects rise, the need for coordination and collaboration increases with the increased demand for stakeholder engagement.
Mission of the stakeholder task group
The mission of the stakeholder task group is to coordinate and collaborate in organizing joint stakeholder events, this is particularly important when Arctic local and Indigenous communities are being reached out. By working jointly in organizing activities, projects can reduce the stakeholder fatigue and are able to better target the stakeholders and rights holders by pooling the resources available by projects. Pandemic will also influence the future events and actions, as travelling has to more efficient with clear purpose and by combining needs of several projects into same event that spreads over two days or more, is beneficial in many ways.
Specific items to be decided and discussed in the task group:
- Joint terminology: The terminology we agree to use across this task group: what do we mean with “stakeholders”? Find the explanation in this section of the wiki.
- Stakeholder mapping: Maps of the stakeholders in the clustered projects, with links to deliverables and reports on the mapping.
