WKCOSTBEN was established by the ICES Planning Group on Data Needs for Assess-ments and Advice (PGDATA). The need for a cost benefit framework is highlighted in the ICES document on “Implementing the ICES strategic plan 2014–2018” (ICES, Au-gust 2014). The work plan for the meeting addressed the following tasks:• Establish what is meant by “cost–benefit framework for data collection”, and who it is designed for;• Identify scope of decisions about data collection and how they could be sup-ported by objective and transparent methods appropriate to the scale of the issue;• Develop some illustrative case studies around examples of regional data col-lection programmes (fisheries, surveys);• Map out a longer term programme for development and implementation of the framework.
