European Scientific Advice Mechanism#

AE to lead on the delivery of scientific advice for the topic Food from the Oceans#

The European Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) provides independent and transparent scientific advice to the European Commission, working with a High-Level Group of Scientific Advisors and the European Academies (SAPEA).

SAPEA (Science Advice for Policy by European Academies) comprises the five European Academy Networks: Academia Europaea, ALLEA, EASAC, Euro-CASE and FEAM - representing over 100 Academies in more than 40 European countries, and spanning the disciplines of engineering, humanities, medicine, science and social sciences. The SAPEA project runs over four years and is funded through a grant from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

The SAM has received the following request for scientific advice to inform policymaking: How can more food and biomass be obtained from the oceans in a way that does not deprive future generations of their benefits?

The organisational lead for the topic will be Academia Europaea (AE), working closely with the other European Academy Networks in SAPEA.
