Advisory body

The project’s advisory body is an advisory council. The advisory body is made up of freshwater pearl mussel experts and their expertise in the areas of mussel conservation and the implementation of measures will be channelled into the project. This is mostly done through participation in project-related working group meetings and event-related advice and consulting. The project advisory body also acts as an additional supervisory body for the ecological evaluation, whose execution and results they appraise and accompany.
