Developing dialogue with your stakeholders: Applying social acceptance tools to avoid barriers in biobased projects
Date: 5 and 6 February 2018
Location: Lille, France
Many companies implementing emerging technologies encounter at some stage barriers or objections from consumers or local stakeholders. It is important to be aware that the stakeholders affected by a new product or process go way beyond the SME’s customer base.
Involving stakeholders in a series of activities to establish relationships is essential, and will lead to an SME being able to form a strong and well-communicated company mission statement and clear long-term vision. “Social acceptance” is the result of this involvement process, stakeholders and project leaders decide together on a number of conditions which must be fulfilled so that a project is seamlessly integrated in its naturel and human environment.
If you are an SME working in the biobased economy, or a support organisations working with this type of SME, apply to attend this training session on 5 and 6 February 2018. You will learn how to develop a dialogue with stakeholders through the application of social acceptance tools and avoid barriers in biobased projects.
AC3A is organising this event within the framework of the project BioBase4SME.
