The dissemination plan envisages a number of open events addressed to stakeholders, civil society organisations, social entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners, consumers, workers and citizens with the aim to enlarge the debate and create a critical mass on the project topics. Besides the kick-off meeting to launch the project, 5 international workshops and seminars will be organised. Moreover, four focus groups of social entrepreneurs will be held to investigate and compare the best use of data in different localities. The Final Conference will disseminate the main findings in terms of new knowledge, new concepts and the European value added, key messages and recommendations for policy-makers.
The open face-to-face events will be organised in order to involve the largest audience possible. To this aim most of them will be webcast live and audio recorded so that podcast and YouTube videos of the highlights can be created and shared with a wider audience. Video conferencing will be made available if necessary. In order to foster the discussion, the workshops can be anticipated by call for ideas and a forum on the major questions handled.
