Abstract

Food from the Oceans is the first Evidence Review Report published by the SAPEA consortium. SAPEA is an integral part of the European Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) and this report demonstrates the outstanding commitment and knowledge of experts who were nominated by academies and learned societies.

Interdisciplinarity and world-class expertise from across Europe are SAPEA’s core strengths. We assembled two international working groups for Food from the Oceans, covering both the natural sciences and the humanities/social sciences.

We were delighted with SAPEA’s collaboration with the High-Level Group of Scientific Advisers (HLG), which has proved so effective in Food from the Oceans. Our Evidence Review Report informs the Scientific Opinion of the HLG. They are published together, and the aim is for them to be used by the European Commission in planning and policymaking across a range of areas.

Academia Europaea performed the role of Lead Academy for the Food from the Oceans Evidence Review Report. It acted as project manager, ensuring that deadlines were met, and outputs were of the highest quality standard. By working well with academies and experts we have met all milestones leading up to and including the final deliverable, the Evidence Review Report itself. We also took a novel approach to public engagement, with encouraging results.

In Food from the Oceans, we believe we have established an attractive model for future SAPEA projects. We would like to thank everyone involved in making Food from the Oceans a success and express our sincere gratitude to those who have worked hard throughout 2017.
