The Second General Meeting of our Action Periamar was held between 22 and 23rd September 2022 in Krakow, Poland. We were hosted by the Institute of Nature Conservation at the Polish Academy of Sciences. The meeting followed a comprehensive agenda: a general session to present different Action outputs, including presentations from STSM candidates, work group leaders, Scientific Communication Committee, and overall discussion to prepare the proposal of a risk assessment strategy. The second day we had separate meetings to focus and work on specific topics. At the end we finished with the Sixth Management Committee Meeting.
