In other EU funded projects, CSCP has also provided expertise on stakeholder mapping, outreach, dialogue, policy advice, sector sustainability roadmap development and translating sustainability in areas such as food and agriculture, Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), housing, mobility and health.
