                                                                                                    (maximum 1000+1000+1000 characters)
Local governance and consultation are the key areas of exchange from our network. Local participation remains indeed a really
theoretical aspect of policies, and local actors are lacking tools and methodologies to involve inhabitants in the decision making
process. This is why partners decided to create an active network, to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and tools on local
governance. Local participation is the cross cutting theme which will be applied to key areas of exchange (transport,
unemployment, culture etc.). Local inhabitants can also be consulted for the regeneration aspects, public services, the image of
the town... The objective of our project, is to exchange knowledge between the inhabitants and the local authorities on the one
hand, and in between partners on the other hand. This exchange of knowledge will facilitate the creation of tools.


Our partnership and topic of cooperation had a defined origin in the INTERREG IIC proposal "inclusive New Towns" . An
international set of partner "New Towns" made a transnational survey on how they met the objectives of the EU planning and other
policies. In this project, the partners identyfied good practices in local participation and consultation as a cross cutting theme.
Because they were built without taking into accounts the needs of inhabitants, some New Towns like Almere developed policies
and actions to prevent this problem by gathering more information from the inhabitants, and by involving them in different areas.
Our project will aim at extending an exchange of tools and actions in this areas, where good practices were identified from the
previous project. Our project aims at including networks, local or regional authorities and research centres in a large network on
local participation as a path for better social link and local governance. .

To develop our objectives, we need to implement actions and have outputs. This is why our project is divided into 5 components
related to the different steps of the project. Component 1 develops coordination and management; Component 2 emphasizes
information on inhabitants with common questionnaires for the inhabitants to collect their views and perceptions and understand
their needs. Component 3 is on exchanges of experience on local participation, with the organization of 6 workshops, 8 panels of
civil servants and researchers to go further in the links between actions, one data base and directory. Component 4 involves
dissemination and communication and will lead to scientific publications and a cultural action as sponsoring "trademark" for the
project. Finally Component 5 will be the evaluation of the project at the local and cross border level, selection of best practices,
and open meetings between researchers and local governments.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE OPERATION
1. Rationale
1.1. Brief history of the Operation
Please describe the history of the development of operation's idea and partnership, as well as partner involvement in developing
the operation and application.
                                                                                                    (maximum 1000+1000+1000 characters)
An international set of partners has participated in the EU Interreg IIC project “Inclusive New Town”. This project was a
transnational survey of new towns and regional development in view of the EU planning and social policies. The first intention of
the project was to evaluate to what extent the existing partners have contributed to a balanced and sustainable development in the
planning and social areas. Local participation was emphasized as a cross cutting theme, and although it was not the main aim of
the project, some partners identified good practices and tools like in Almere with the example of "political market" which could help
the other partners to develop better systems of information from the inhabitants, analyze it, and take it into account in the local
policies and actions. These tools are concrete examples on how to make relevant questionnaires, how to consult inhabitants on
what is affecting them everyday (public services, security or social cohesion).

The partnership did not finish with the project. In 2001 the European New towns Platform was created by the partners to continue
exchanging on the project. The partners decided to extend the good practices of the previous projects in this special area, to other
small and medium sized cities, metropolitan areas or regional poles, facing the same issues and especially interested by the
questions such as: 'Which public services are needed and how to involve inhabitants?', 'how to implement local governance?' and
"how to improve the Community feeling by involving inhabitants in the decision making process'. Several common meetings
already took place: two in Brussels, two in Almere and two in Berlin. They all expressed the need to have a real and reactive
network which would make possible to develop tools and a methodology to be used by the network. The data base gathered at the
European level will also have some relevance.

The ENTP network has been expanding: we do have more members from the EU. The objectives of the ENTP are developing and
adapting to new needs: exchanging with other cities, develop methodologies on local participation. We need to change the
network scope and concept to adapt to new needs. Partners want to have more tools and a common methodology for exchanges
in local participation. There is an urgent need for inter regional exchanges and solutions among new members. Following our
different partners' exchanges, we are convinced that the knowledge is available at local authorities and research centres
specialized in regional policies. By now, the need for actual exchanges and cooperation has grown. The project would help to find
common tools in the area of local participation and local welfare. Our ambition is to have an action orienting knowledge networks
to local participation.

1.1.1 Regional Partnerships
For RFOs please provide description of the regional partnerships (chapter 2.7.1 of the Programme Manual) and their involvement
in the preparation phase.
                                                                                                           (maximum 1000+1000 characters)




1.2. Problem description
Please describe what problem(s) and / or issue(s) the operation will address. Explain the background to the problem(s) / issue(s),
their relevance to partnership and the INTERREG IIIC Programme.
                                                                                                           (maximum 1000+1000 characters)
The partners underlined two main problems: the absence of tools and methodologies within the network and the need to take
inhabitants into accounts. There is a need to know better the needs and opinions from inhabitants and to transform their needs
into coherent policies, as well as to include them in the decision making process. The partners explained that they need to have
more interactions with the inhabitants (local participation), and between different towns (institutions) (need of a strong and efficient
network). Until now, no network was legitimized by both inhabitants and local governments. There is a need to increase interaction
beween inhabitants, gather more information on inhabitants, analyze it and involve them better in policies areas: (public services,
unemployement). The local governance defined by the European Commission is too broad for local governments to find key
solutions and adequate process to implement.

 We have found 4 levels of local participation and partners want to reach the highest. The lowest level is information to inhabitants,
the second one is symbolic participation, the third level is consultation and analysis and the fourth is to take into account the
results of the consultation in the different areas concerned. The consultation will be done on key priority issues from the partners,
and in which there is a need of tools. The common issues faced by the partners and inhabitants, are social cohesion problems due
to a high rate of unemployement. (8700 unemployed persons in Almere, 1917 in Harlow, 5467 in Marne la Vallée, 4370 in Sénart;
6,9% in Western Greece, 7% in Nuoro), violence, insecurity prevention, welcome of new population, derelicted areas.

1.3. Objectives of the operation
Please list and describe the overall objective and sub-objectives of the operation.                           (maximum 1000+1000 characters)
The overall objective is to reinforce tools and actions in local participation by creating an active network. We that, we need to
bring together knowledge and develop a simple system of exchanging information. For that, we need to process on information
gathering from the inhabitants and make the information functional in common. The final objectives in these exchanges are: to
bring together city and society (by organizing local participation at the interregional level); to share information, tools and find
solutions at the partner's (creation of a database, workshops and study panel of civil servants and researchers, analysis of
scientific results, have a reactive network); the dissemination of information to our partners, but also to students with the creation
of scientific pole, cultural communication and exhibitions, to influence better local policies.


Via this project we want that local decision makers are able to gather information on inhabitants on urban and social structure
matters in order to be able to improve their policies. At the partners level the objectives are the following : a) translation of facts
and experience (evaluation) into knowledge, b) thinking about and debating on former/other experience, c) directed investigation
by scientific pole (research centres) composed by the Interdisciplinary centre ICCR, the CIR the IRM :Institute of urban
development in Krakow) d) creation of a system of participation by future inhabitants, e) create links with other networks.




1.4. Expected outputs, results and impacts of the operation
Please describe the
- outputs (tangible and visible outcomes or products of the operation's activities, such as meetings, guides, websites, databases),
- results (e.g. transfer of best practices from one region to another, development of a joint project between two regions, increased
human resource capacities, etc.) and
- long term impacts (e.g. improvement of the efficiency of Structural Funds implementation, the contribution to the sustainable
development of participating regions)
the operation intends to produce. Whenever possible, please use measurable indicators for measuring the outputs, results and
impacts. The description should be in line with the information provided in the Annex III.
                                                                                                               (maximum 1000+1000 characters)
The tangible outpouts will be: questionnaires for local inhabitants, 6 workshops, 8 panels of civil servants to go further in finding
solutions, creation of an interactive data base and directory for partners, creation of a scientific pole as well as organization of
exhibitions, translation of facts and figures into information, development of systems of local participation for inhabitants,
dissemination of scientific results via reports and cultural actions for communications. The indicators are: nr of persons attending
workshops and panels, nr of reports, visitors for the exhibitions, inhabitants reached, number of tools created. The results will be
the use of an interactive data base, more cooperation, better exchange of information and knowledge, gathering more information
from inhabitants for better policies, use of new methods The impacts will be a more integrated approach of local governance at
the regional and cross regional level.

The project should improve policies at the regional and local level, systems of participation for local inhabitants, improvement of
social environment. It will facilitate the dissemination of scientific information on local participation, public services, social structure
plans, integral development plans. The exchange of knowledge and tools that will be transform into policies at a representative
scale, will contribute to the cohesion of the European territory. The indicators used will be: number of tools and knowledge
(concepts) learnt by the stakeholders, number of policy documents mentioning the project, number of civil servants exchanges
and contacts (number of telephone calls etc.), number of inhabitants consulted. The long term impacts are the improvement of
policies in the area of local participation, cross regional cohesion, and a better analysis of the context.

1.5. Approach and methodology
Please describe what approach and methodology (activities, their combination and sequence) will be used to produce the intended
outputs, results and impacts, and achieve the objectives of the operation? Explain the relation of the chosen methodology to the
selected Type of Operation. The description should be in line with the information provided in Annex III.
                                                                                                       (maximum 1000+1000+1000 characters)
The methodology used is based on interactive participation and exchanges. Each partner has initiatives and experiences, but they
are lacking a global information system to get the information from other partners and regions. Workshops, regular contacts and
dissemination of reports/analysis will lead to the translation of facts and experience into knowledge and policies. Partners will think
about and debate former and new experiences. All investigations will be supported by a scientific pole( ICCR/ CIR/IRM),
researchers and other networks in order to have a follow up each key priority. At the local level, the partners will improve their
ways to involve inhabitants and use the tools of the project; in the policy process and reflection. Partners will make knowledge (on
future city and social development) available for future inhabitants by consulting them and applying tools. One of the most original
aspect of this project, is indeed the link with inhabitants.

In order to debate and exchange on local participation, we had to identify key areas in which it is possible to involve inhabitants:
In each sector the methodology tries to develop governance and community tools: how should local inhabitants be motivated to
participate? Which pedagogy is it possible to use? The key areas concerned are the ones faces by local citizens every day ( with
2 main sub themes urban and social): 1/The evolution of public services 2/ Consultation on the regeneration of derelict areas 3/
How do inhabitants perceive insecurity?,4/ Transport accessibility analyzed by inhabitants 5/ Cultural events as a Community
empowrement. Partners already implemented consultation action but at the 1st or 2nd level, and thanks to the project, they will
find and exchange tools to reach the highest level of local participation (4th level: take into account the consultation into policies).


Our methodology of exchange of knowledge is directed at 2 target groups: the inhabitants reached by the questionnaire; and the
partners benefiting from the tools and methodology. We include our project in the network type of action because the main actions
are to exchange knowledge between governments and inhabitants and between partners . Indeed, we would like to share
knowledge and experiences with a reasonable number of partners from different countries to have a relevant scope at the
European level. In order to have better tools and improve the scientific analysis, we will create a scientific pole of analysis. One of
the overall objectives of the project is to bring together knowledge, exchange information and to transform information into tools
and methods. Our methodology is also inspired by the Dutch Presidency objective "Equal treatment and participation' as
discussed in the conference of Rotterdam the 6th and 7th July 2004.

Policies are long lasting. The results of the project will be pioneer for our local partners and answer to a long term vision.
Concerning the operations, the knowledge networks should continue and possibly merge with the ENTP because the ENTP needs
to adapt to new needs from the members. With this regard, the interactive directory is an important element, which will allow the
partners to keep in touch regularly. For the extension of the project (creation of an advisory body on local participation), partners
will propose a project which could be implemented jointly. The network will continue and extend, as well as develop exchanges
with other networks. The outputs will be used jointly or at least shared with other networks. Networks have to continuously evolve
and adapt to the needs of society and of Europe. In this way, the project will combine synergies with the existing networks and
especially the ENTP structure, created by the lead partner, to continue.

One or two persons will continue the project as coordinators. At the beginning they will use the existing structures in the lead
partner's municipality or in the ENTP. With the concrete results of the project, our ambition is to create a pool of reflection on local
governance and social consultation, which could be a consulting and advisory body for future European and regional policies. The
data base and conclusions on the different aspects, the guide of good practices, will be the basis of knowledge which could be
used as an advisory body for other local authorities, or organizations specialized in local governance and local consultation. The
questionnaires, and concrete examples will be available online at the end of the project.

2. Policy context
2.1. Contribution to the Programme objectives
Please describe, how the operation will help to achieve the objectives of the INTERREG IIIC Programme: what will be its
contribution to the improvement of EU and national policies and instruments for regional development and cohesion? Describe any
innovative elements the operation will introduce, as well as what will be the added value achieved with the help of trans-national
interregional cooperation?
                                                                                                         (maximum 1000+1000 characters)
INTERREG IIIC is a program which should encourage regional and other public authorities to view interregional cooperation as a
means of enhancing their development through accessing the experience of others. Our project registers itself in this overall
objective : contributing to the creation of a European territory and cross regional cooperation as a mean to develop tools for public
authorities. Through our previous project, in the framework of INTERREG IIC, we already developed a structural policy based on
cooperation at the local and regional level. We are going to replicate the best practices of this project to a wider Europe, and to
sharpen the results of this project.




Our focus is to contribute to the development of better project approaches and policies, tools and knowledge for cross regional
and transnational cooperation as a starting point to work on development of project and policy approaches. The projects will
strengthen the regional and cohesion policy wilth the following points : improvement of local governance, development of
synergies, integrated approaches to knowledge. The project 's objective is closely akin to the European Spatial Development
Perspective's aim of economic and social cohesion. The project aims at facilitating a more harmonious development, Community
feeling, and European citizenship.

The partners have initially cooperated in the INTERREG IIC programme on different areas including local participation as a cross
cutting theme. All partners have already implemented consultation actions towards inhabitants, and they want to exchange their
knowledge in this area, with the other partners, to reach the highest level and the better tools of the participation (taking into
account the needs on inhabitants).Several good practices have been identified among which the creation of questionnaires, and
tools to gather information on inhabitants on different themes that they are facing everyday.




Today the in-depth analysis should be extended, for which not only reflexions and workshops should be foreseen, but also finding
tools and solutions, analyzing their impacts on policies and promoting a large scale project.The added value of this project will be
to bring together knowledge and develop a system of exchanging information and sharing methodologies in order to promote this
large scale project.

Society is continuously evolving. Social contexts and social needs are changing. Local and regional actors need to make social
structure plans, city agreements and social development plans, which contribute to the objectives of the regional and cohesion
policies, to the Lisbon employment strategy and the Goteborg strategy on sustainable development. Most of the partners are also
inspired by the principle of the Aalborg charter on local sustainable development,




The equal opportunity of men and women are promoted by our partners and at the project's management level. The town of
Harlow has received a price of good practices for applying gender equality to local participation.The gender aspects in all our
actions and in the local consultation, will be a cross cutting theme.The ICCR Vienna especially which is really specialized in this
area, will take a special care that these aspects are respected. Concerning environment, sustainable development is a priority in
the policies from our partners. A sustainable environment contributes to social cohesion and Community building. Inhabitants need
to be involved also in this area. Environment aspects will be visible in the exchanges and priorities as a transversal approach, and
will be taken into account on the workshops when relevant.

. It will gather minimum one representative per partner. The role of the Steering Committee will be to take decisions on a majority
basis on the action plan and implementation of the project. All strategic actions will be discussed at the Steering Committee level.
The lead partner will have the responsibility to inform the Secretariat of INTERREG.

The partners are reponsible to inform in due time, their local authorities about the decisions of the Steering committee when it is
appropriate. The representatives are indeed officially representing their institutions. The partners are the ones listed in the
application form and contributing financially, but other local authorities can participate in the project as observers, following that

independent auditor will sign the partner's claims.

in the short term. The website will include a partner's area of restricted access. In each component there will be meetings at least

the responsibilities in each component, to have a main reporter for each action. The scientific committee will meet twice a year in
meetings to develop the scientific inputs. They are indeed playing a large role. Project meetings are an important management
tool of the project. Project meetings will relate the objectives and action plan in each component and will be scheduled by the lead

payment claim forms. The lead partner will check that there are no annexes, invoices and payment ledgers missing in the file. An
external auditor will certify the payment claim, before this one is sent to the III C Secretariat. After approval by the secretariat and
reception of the fund, the lead partner will have a period of 2 months to send the co-financing amounts to the different partners. An
external evaluation will be made by an auditing independant firm. This firm will be appointed following the legal rules of public
contract.

All partners need to develop tools and methods on local governance and participation They already implemented innovative local
actions like Almere's political market but they need to exchange information and knowledge. The partners as an answer to urban
problems decided to develop local participation actions: gather information and take it into account in policies in 2 sub themes
urban and social. The project aims at improving the information taken from inhabitants and the way to integrate it into policies. This
evolvement is new and innovative. All partners are also willing to implement a new methods of exchanges, to improve their
knowledge and share solutions at the European level. Partners developed a partnership by exchanges through the European New
Towns Platform but also via partners meetings (we organized 2 partners meetings in Brussels, one in Berlin and one in Cergy
Pontoise in September).

The 21 partners are linked by a strong will to develop tools. They met already 4 times in meetings in Brussels, Berlin, Cergy. They
exchange information by e-mail, phone calls and are committed to the project. The origin of this cooperation is the will to develop
tools and policies on local participation. Towns like Almere, following the "polder model" of participation was recognized as a good
practice in the previous proposal. The lead partner through contacts and the ENTP linked 6 towns from the previous IIC project, but
also the cooperation with the scientific pole (committee) specialized in regional policies, 5 members from Eastern Europe and 6
from Southern Europe in order to have a relevant European scope.




Please explain what each partner will contribution to the operation as well as what each partner benefit from it. Also, specify how
the different competencies and the specific know-how of each partner will be used in the implementation (partner‟s expertise in the
field of proposal). Make sure that each partner has a clearly defined role in the project.

Description of the Component 1
                                                                                                   (maximum 1000+1000+1000 characters)
Management and coordination of integrated activities are one of the key elements and difficulties of interregional projects. Our
project brings together 21 partners on a wide and enlarged European territory. Integrated actions (component 1) of coordination
and management are the stricto sensu actions of administrative and financial management. Those actions will be developed by all
partners in all sectors of activity concerned, in order to achieve the main objective of the project (the knowledge network:
developing exchanges on local participation to improve local governance on urban and social matters ), since there are some
actions which concern project follow-up and an analysis of the links between the various themes.




The first part of the component: the coordination and management stricto sensu will be implemented by Almere (one project's
manager full time, one coorfinator and an assistant and one financial manager 1/2 time) with the technical assistance of the ENTP
at the beginning. This first part of the component is of high importance for several reasons: too much projects start too slowly
because the administrative and financial procedures are not settled at an earlier stage or are misunderstood by the partners. This
is why we want to organize Steering Committee meetings and to disseminate procedure guides to the partners, draft progress and
technical evaluation reports, giving information on the program, the procedures, the coordination and answering all questions of the
partners at an early stage, as well as during the project.



The management and coordination are also necessary for the coordination of components and to keep the coherence of the project
at the inter regional level. The Steering committee will be in charge of the strategic orientations of the project and action plan
readjustments under the supervision of the lead partner.




                                                                                                                            ANNEX III.1 72

The aim of the component is to gather information and knowledge for inhabitants at the local level; and for partners at the cross-
regional level (this answers the priorities of networks to exchange experience). Partners will exchange on how to prepare a
common city questionnaire for local inhabitants to analyze the inhabitants perceptions, and needs, to develop better local
participation tools and systems, to analyze society and identify facts and figures at the cross regional level. This action is really
important for the network. This is indeed an exchange of knowledge and experience between the inhabitants and the governments
on the one hand, and between the partnersconcerning the results on the second hand. In order to exchange in a really efficient
way, networks need to exchange the same information and the knowledge need to be prepared and analyzed in order to have
better results.

The objective is to apply local participation from theory to action. The European white paper on governance defines pillars:
participation, transparency, efficiency are 3 of them. However the participation and transparency parts can be applied at different
scales, and using different actions or tools. It is extremely difficult to implement good governance and local participation. This is
why the partners decided to start from existing actions to try to find best practices and tools, and to exchange the results of city
questionnaires. The second reason of this component is that municipalities usually do not have a social contextual analysis about
their towns. The project will make this analysis available for them and for the inhabitants.




The outputs of this component are the following : A/ Exchange on the template of the city questionnaires; B/ Sending the city
questionnaires to an audience of 2000 inhabitants; C/ Gathering towns' data (contextual analysis); D/ Analyzing information of city
questionnaires: perception and need of inhabitants; E/ Creation of common city booklets for inhabitants; F/ Demonstration and
improvement of one existing multimedia tool for community empowerment (Capelle aan den Ijssel); G/ Events and conferences H/
Demonstration of a multimedia tool for Community empowerement I/testing J/ Development of tools for a model of involvement of

Responsible partner        Almere



Involved partners          All partners will be involved under 2 strands : active role partners involved in the organization of
                           workshops and panels of civil servants, and other partners involved in all activities but which are not
                           organizing events. .

Planned results            a/ to exchange experience and best practice between partners, b/creation of common tools and
                           methods, c/to solve problems that partners are facing thanks to the panels, d/ increase the
                           understanding between partners, e/ increase the knowledge of the partners.

Result Indicators          a) number of content tools developed 10, b)number of contacts and cooperation 3/month/technician,
and                        c)number of problems solved on local participation 5, d) increased level of participation by the use of
their Quantification       better tools 5-10%, e) number of guide books/reports 1-2
(maximum 550 characters)



Expected Outputs           The outputs are: creation of one data base of useful information between partners (1), directory 1,
and                        number of adresses in the directory 300, organization of workshops gathering stakeholders (6)

Description of the Component 3
                                                                                                      (maximum 1000+1000+1000 characters)
This component is complementary to the component 2 in the way that the exchanges are more global and less focused. This is the
core stone of the network i.e. its reason of being. The main added value will be brought by this exchange of knowledge. Once
logistical procedures will be implemented, it will be easier to communicate on a regular basis. The lead partner will be responsible
for this cooperation, as well as the partners in charge of the organization of events. All partners will be involved under 2 categories:
active partners involved in the organization of workshops (budget more important), and other partners involved in other activities,
but not organizing events. A/ Creation of the data base and Directory B/ Workshops C/Panels of civil servants and researchers. A
workshop is a place for exchanges between partners and a panel is rather a small group of specialized persons working a specific
case study

The outcomes will be: organization of 6 workshops followed by 8 panels of civil servants and researchers, regular exchange of
information, creation of a scientific data base and directory. The exchanges focus on how to involve inhabitants applied to different
sub themes : social cohesion, perception of security, public services, image, physical regeneration. The methodology used is to
gather different stakeholders. The panels can be organized at a time of political negotiations, when towns, regions or even national
governments discuss about future policies and need to exchange tools. The workshops will be on "local governance" in Cergy
Pontoise; "social cohesion: which public services needed" in Granollers, "How to combine economic development, social
environment, and Community feeling?" Region of Western Greece, "The perception of security by inhabitants" in Vienna ICCR,
"Local participation and cohesion through culture": Nuoro and a final, concluding event in Almere

The panel of civil servants and researchers are an efficient way of solving problems at the local level with external advice within the
partnership and cross-border expertise. The lead partner Almere already organized these types of events. The panels will take
place in Santa Cruz :1/" Alternative methods to solve unemployment and reaction of inhabitants"; 2/ Marbella: "consultation of
inhabitants on transport accessibility"; 3/ Western Greece Region: "The NIBY : not in my backyard syndrome", 4/ Rimini : "local
participation and social cohesion: the Italian model and how to extend it?"; 5/ Vantaa and Harlow: "Physical regeneration and
image: how to involve inhabitants in the process?"; 6/ Budapest II "How to combine the satisfaction of the needs from inhabitants
with a competitive environment; 7/ Krakow Poland: "local participation and physical regeneration of derelict areas"; 8/ Almere: "a
participative model of governance".

The dissemination and communication are important points. This is why we chose to develop a cultural communication project with
the support of the town of Nuoro for the design of the project's brochure and the project's communication strategy. However; the
project also needs a scientific analysis of the results. All partners will have a responsibility in the dissemination of results vis local
media, newsletters, websites, and it will be facilitated for networking organizations like the ENTP or the scientific pole . The
communication sttrategy needs to be further developed for instance at the scientific level, for communication; and to be
disseminated at a wider scale.




The lead partner will be responsible for the communication. Partners and networks like the ENTPbut also other networks, as well
as the scientific pole will help the dissemination of information. The communication concerns the creation of a website; the strategic
communication of the project by Nuoro, but also 2 exhibitions of the project (one in Almere one in Cergy); the officialization of the
scientific pole, drafting scientific publications. The exhibitions will present the results of the project, but also pictures of project's
partners.




The outputs will be A/ The creation of a website B/ The formalization of a scientific pole; C/ 2 exhibitions on the project: one in
Almere and one in Cergy Pontoise, D/ Strategic communication of Nuoro and E/ Scientific publications by the CIR and ICCR
Research centre.

There are 2 levels of this component: the evaluation of the results at the local and project's level and the continuation through the
use of results at the EU level. On the evaluation part, we would like to know, if the conclusions and methods, were applied in the
regional and local policies or at least can we demonstrate that it had an influence?. We described earlier the exchange of
knowledge has been largely described in component 3. This is why this component focuses on the follow up; on the impacts; and
how we think the project influenced policies and actions. For instance, we will evaluate the impact .




Of course, the results of this component and actions will start later in time; because this component is the follow up of the
exchange. We hope with this project, to l bring concrete, and relevant elements for stakeholders to take decisions. In this sense we
think that the panels of civil servants and reports produced will have a major impact for the local policies to take better care of local
participation and inhabitants needs. We will use the scale: in how many decisions are local inhabitants involved in a project? and to
which extend? The scientific pole will analyze the researches and select best practices from project. Face to face meetings will be
organized between researchers and local governments on the results of the project and local governance. It will take place in 6
cities.



Our actions in the project will be to monitor the impacts on actions and policies following the project by A/ Gathering documents; B/
Interviews following the panels; C/ Internal discussions within towns to assess the project. D/ Approach of the Councils, E/
Selection of best practices, and drafting of a methodological guide. .

The preparation of the project has taken one full year of time: It started in 2003 with a meeting in Brussels in the ENTP offices
gathering 14 persons. At this occasion, the town of Almere presented the idea to create a European Knowledge networks with the
help of the ENTP. After this time, the ENTP was mandated to draft the proposal and find partners. We have met the Secretariat in
Lille the first time with 3 persons to present the project. In reality one person has worked 65 days for the ENTP and 30 days in
Almere for the project (staff time)




Some communication actions have been implemented (presentation of the project in Berlin in March 2004 at the INTERREG IIIC
event by one person) and participation in the Rotterdam event in January 2005 (4 persons). Finally, we have met the Secretariat 2
times in Lille with 2 persons to discuss about the project.




There were trans-national meetings organized for the project, however there are not budgeted in the preparation costs : one in
Brussels in November 2003, and one in Zoetermeer in January 2004, and finally one in Almere after the first submission of the
project. Finally the budget is budgeting less days than worked because of the limit: 42 days at 300 Euros for the ENTP and 17,5
days at 250 Euros for Almere. The travels budgeted are 2 person return trip to Berlin: 300 Euros, 4 persons return trip to
Rotterdam plus accomodation : 600 Euros; Almere return Ticckets to Lille: 100 Euros
