Possible thematic challenges

  • How to optimally fit EIA into the Green Deal framework, especially in terms of"screening "and"scoping"”?
  • How can we effectively consider in EIA the(„Do Not Significant Harm“)and the new EU taxonomy for sustainable activities defined by the Regulation (EU) 2020/852?
  • How to improve relationships between EIA, decision-making and development consent?
  • What is the connection between EIA and Appropriate Assessment, ensuring good water status, social and heritage impact assessment, etc.?
  • How EIA reflects on environmental and integrated permit?
  • What are the links between EIA and climate proofing?
  • How to improve public participation, procedure efficency and quality control in EIA? How to reliably assess cumulative impacts in terms of Environmental and Health Risk Assessment?
  • How to make transboundary consultations more efficient?
  • What are the cutting edge solutions of environmental protection measures and monitoring?
  • What can we learn for the future from judicial practice?
