Stakeholder Advisory Board

The Stakeholder Advisory Board (SHAB) was established to advise HDHL and to ensure an adequate exchange of information with other political bodies and stakeholders in the fields of Food & Health.

The stakeholders advisory board is a communication platform of all relevant stakeholders that facilitates a close network between all relevant actors in the following research areas:

  1. Citizens, Diet and Behaviour
  2. Food for Health
  3. Diet, Health and Disease

The stakeholders advisory board:

  • Forms a meta-group of representatives from relevant institutional bodies in the ERA and in the field of food & health
  • Comments on drafts of all relevant documents of HDHL
  • Multiplies and forwards all relevant information of HDHL, such as common activities and initiatives, joint calls etc.
  • Ensures backing
  • Monitors,  on request, the progress of HDHL and give advice with regard to strategic issues.
