Outline of CITISPYCE Work Programme
The work programme of CITISPYCE is organised into a series of Work Packages, which cover the following areas of activity:
Determination of appropriate Methodologies at the outset of the project, to ensure the quality and consistency of research.
WP2: A baseline study in each of the designated cities from the 10 countries covered in the partnership, including a survey of employment, housing, education policy frameworks, post-recession changes and income inequalities.
WP3: Fieldwork to examine the attitudes and perceptions of policy-makers and practitioners, in the public sector, and other key stakeholders towards dealing with inequalities facing disadvantaged young people.
WP4:Fieldwork to examine young people’s self-generated activity to challenge economic and social barriers, as well as the potential of such innovation to combat both longstanding and more recently emerging forms of inequality.
WP5:Analysis of field work findings to identify ways of improving knowledge transfer between young people and policy-makers and the possible scaling up and transferability of social innovation initiatives to combat inequalities.
Pilot studies of socially innovative practices developed in one location to other locations across Europe.
WP7:Preparation of case studies and organisation of an Evaluation Seminar, including young people from targeted neighbourhoods.
WP8:Production of policy recommendations and Final Report.
WP9: Project management and coordination.
