National Stakeholder Forums

National Stakeholder Forums (NSFs) have been set up locally in each of the ten European countries involved in the HIT2GAP project.

The NSFs are composed of representatives of national and local government, professional bodies, agencies, industry and local businesses. They provide support to the project at a local level and they also represent the interests of the individual countries with regards to the HIT2GAP outputs and potential adoption of HIT2GAP systems. 

Details of the NSFs are outlined below. If you are interested in joining one of the forums please contact HIT2GAP (or your local contact point given below)for more information.
