Partnership and co-building principles – WP 5
Leading partners
Teams involved
Co-building of development principles, governance tools and policy recommendations.
The goal of WP 5 it to contribute to the dissemination of the principles of partnership and to the co-building (research/partners) approaches at the level of all the selected case studies. Main targets are: to share common visions of European regions dynamics, to organize local and regional partnerships and to build participatory methods, to implement participatory tools and devices in the TASTE case studies areas.
Description of work
Participatory approach is a way to analyze local bottlenecks of sustainable development approaches shared by stakeholders. Starting from an agreement on the territorial problem definition can help at getting closer for finding (partial) solutions and at scaling up new approaches to territory management. Diagnoses, modeling, consultation can be combined to create interplays between different information processes while pro-actively involve the actors to generate a shared strategic vision of the territorial development.
  • 5.1. Recording of some participatory meetings and debates with stake-holders
  • 5.2. Report on principles of partnership and co-building (concepts, methods and tools implemented)
  • 5.3. Manual of methodological itinerary tested and implemented in different regions.
Milestones and expected result
  • M1: Field connection: First meetings in regions, starting with questions by local actors, at different scales, from their individual and local expectations related to local public policies and global mechanisms.The expected results are: share vision of territorial dynamics and stakes.
  • M2: Research-action approach: participatory process linking researchers and local stakeholders involved in rural or agri-urban development projects. Formalization of participatory research frameworks and methodological pathways, identification of “good practices” enhancing virtuous partnerships and co-building spatio-temporal representations of evolution scenario. The expected results are comparison between contrasted situations in Europe.
  • M3: Reflexive analysis: Workshops to analyze case-studies results. Organization of controversial debates. Formalization of learning process and development of new competences and skills. Adaptive action-research frameworks enhancing territorial development in rural and peri-urban areas are expected.
