Workshops & Events

The SOCCR Coordinating Team designed the SOCCR to be useful for policy makers, scientists, business groups, environmental and related public interest groups. To supplement and complement the governmental and scientific review process, the Team has sought comments and suggestions from all of these stakeholders. To this end, several workshops were held to seek input on how well the SOCCR addresses scientific, policy, business and other interests and concerns.
