Commission agrees Stakeholder Dialogue Membership
On 29 November 2007, the European Commission appointed the members of the newly-created DG SANCO 'Stakeholder Dialogue Group' (SDG). The first meeting of the Group took place on 30 November 2007.
The Group has been created at the request of stakeholders, to advise DG SANCO on how to increase the effectiveness of its public consultation processes in its areas of responsibility. The SDG membership is balanced in terms of nationality, knowledge and experience of stakeholder dialogue in Europe. Each member has agreed to serve on the Group in their personal capacity. The SDG will meet four times in 2008. Updates on the 2008 discussions will be publicly available on the Group's website which is currently under construction.
The Group is chaired by Robert Madelin, Director-General of DG Health and Consumer Protection. The Members of the Group are:
