Our researchers have considerable experience in stakeholder engagement at local, national and transboundary scales, working with NGOs, industry, government departments, local authorities, policy makers and community groups through their research projects, as well as disseminating their findings via multimedia, public lectures and community events. The Governance team within MaREI are very much at the forefront of facilitating active participation, engagement and stakeholder dialogue for mutual benefit and understanding, and are focused on communicating science to enable informed decision making. Members of the team are leading and participating in a number of nationally-funded, EU funded, and international projects which engage with a diverse range of stakeholders and utilise a variety of tools to support dissemination and two-way communication.
