Feedback on participatory experiences Also the most important decision-making takes place on the EU level and only a few NGOs based in Brussels have opportunity to participate e.g.: insatisfaction with how EFSA formulates its opinions - lack of civil society participation vs. known ties of some members to the industry While there have been some improvements, most of the consultations happen in a written form and there is little chance for direct participation Public participation is often hindered by the lack of access to information - NGOs and individuals need to invest a lot of energy getting hold of that information that should be available in the first place

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
