The second phase will focus on drafting the Initiative and its action plan in much more detail.
It will further build on the cooperation options with broad stakeholder engagement. Both offline and online. Offline, with a number of events to reach stakeholders who are potentially interested and affected by such an initiative. And online, by inviting people to join web-based discussions on specific topics that become paramount.
The implementation of Phase 2 is subject to a decision to be made in March 2016, based on the findings and recommendations made under Phase 1, and also taking into consideration whether EU added value and/or political readiness required to underpin this process should be judged as sufficient.
