Work Plan

First stage:

  • literature review;
  • local reports about the current paths of creative knowledge regions for each case study;
  • a comparative study, resulting in classification to reveal general types of paths and provide a basis for a differentiated approach to certain groups of city regions in the subsequent empirical research.

Triest doorsSecond stage (empirical research):

  • the analysis of target group importance for each city region;
  • three separate studies on certain target groups, based on questionnaires, surveys and interviews (graduates and workers, managers, transnational migrants);
  • discussion of results among the partners and between the partners and their local partnerships (LOP).

Third stage (synthesis):

  • synthesis of results for each case-study;
  • comparative study across cases;

Fourth stage:

  • existing policies and strategies;
  • policy recommendations, considering different paths and based on good practices;
  • dissemination of results
