number of European and overseas stakeholders not involved as partners in MIME have agreed to interact with the MIME consortium through the Stakeholder Forum. The persons representing these stakeholders will provide their opinion on issues related to diversity and multilingualism relavant to the project , rooted in their activity as practitioners and professionals.
It is important to stress that the advice that stakeholder representatives will provide obviously does not replace scientific principles and practices. MIME is and will remain a research project that will deliver scientific results for publication in scientific journals and be of relevance to other members of the scientific community. The role of the Stakeholder Forum is to be understood as an addition to these scientific goals, and as part of an approach to scientific work that pays attention to the maximisation of its relevance beyond research. This concern is, of course, particularly important in a project that is intended to deliver practical tools for policy selection, design and evaluation.
Stakeholder Forum Meetings will take place alongside consortium meetings. Each meeting will put the spotlight on one of the four main target groups of stakeholders.Read more about the Stakeholder Forum concept
