MEDWAYCAP Interactive map

A 3D interactive map showing the territorial coverage of the good practices developed by the different projects that have worked in synergy during MEDWAYCAP. The map provides collaborative and interactive learning opportunities, offering a dynamic and engaging way to learn about the solutions developed in the different Mediterranean countries. This map is the result of a joint effort of all partners, who shared their best practices by telling their stories using the storytelling method. Have a look at the map on the homepage of the MENAWARA project.

Project results and guidelines for capitalization

The strategic framework for the Capitalization Plan is widening knowledge, use and transfer of MEDISS knowledge assets, outputs and experiences to enable the use and take up of the results.

MedRiSSE Comparative Report and Analysis on co-production and public sector innovation

An in-depth comparative report and analysis on co-production and public sector innovation was completed, providing a comprehensive understanding of the social innovation elements of the 5 capitalised projects. The objective was to gain a broad understanding of how social innovation in the 5 projects was tackled and what the main issues and priorities to be considered for policy purposes are. Several focus groups and interviews/surveys with 5 project teams were organized to define the concept of social innovation and its impact in target countries.

MedRiSSE Innovation Credit System

Asanblea de Cooperación por la Paz (ACPP) and the Palestinian Agricultural Coooperatives Association (PARC) , with the help of experts, developed a system of innovation credits to encourage consultation of relevant SSE actors by public services. The Innovation Tokens in the Social Policy Co-Production Lab provide a variety of ways for users to engage with the Lab, from incentivizing collaboration to rewarding contributions and recognizing status. These tokens can be used to access exclusive content, services, and rewards. Innovation Tokens provide a powerful mechanism for distributing resources and incentivizing desired behaviors within a community of practice.

MedRiSSE Wiki User Handbook

A Wiki User Handbook was developed for the MedRiSsE online learning repository, serving as a valuable resource for innovators, researchers, and policymakers to enhance their co-production skills. This repository is collectively managed by the WCoP, ensuring relevant and timely updates. It facilitated the dissemination of knowledge generated by the 5 capitalized projects such as the eLearning courses, the replicability roadmaps, and the policy briefs.

MedRiSSE Policy briefs in promoting social innovation led by SSE entities

Oxfam Italy, based on a cross-country analysis, constructed 5 thematic policy briefs targeting key topics in social innovation. These topics were chosen for their relevance to broader public debate and the potential to be leveraged at a country level. The themes include: promoting the role of Social Solidarity Economy (SSE) in developing the green economy in Jordan; pragmatic options for social enterprises to access blended finance mechanisms in Italy; advancing local currencies and removing implementation barriers in Spain; financial support for women-led cooperatives, contributing to women empowerment in Palestine; and enhancing cooperation between higher education, social entrepreneurs, and the SSE sphere in Tunisia’s educational system. The briefs were developed in collaboration with regional focal points and a consultant, validated through a restitution meeting, and disseminated via both offline workshops and online webinars. These briefs offer detailed and specific actions and recommendations for policy makers to effectively promote social innovation.

MedRiSSE Replication Toolkit

The MedRiSSE Replication Toolkit was developed by ARCO/PIN S.c.r.l. to provide an easy to read and practitioners-oriented toolkit aiming to inspire and provide guiding elements for SSE actors in the public and private sectors wishing to replicate public-private co-production models and SSE good practices.

MedRiSSE Replication Roadmaps for replicability on Social Innovation practices

ARCO/PIN S.c.r.l., Italian partner of MedRiSSE, conducted a literature review on replicability tools and frameworks assessing scalability of social innovation initiatives. This guided the evaluation of the replication and scalability potential of 5 good practices from the MEDRiSSE project. The framework is based on the Sustainable Human Development paradigm and the Capability Approach perspective, viewing the Social and Solidarity Economy from a territorial ecosystem perspective. It also considers contextual factors. This exchange of knowledge and experience resulted in five replicability roadmaps and a toolkit to guide potential replication of social innovation models.

MEDWAYCAP Memorandum of Understanding

An alliance for a long-term capitalisation strategy at Mediterranean level to improve non-conventional water supply, management and reuse, formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the project partners and associated partners, as part of a broader capitalisation strategy. The parties to the Memorandum agreed to develop and implement an advocacy strategy and to set measurable milestones to assess the relevance of their joint initiative to the main outcomes sought.
