  • Reminder of objectives (LfC call):
    • facilitate mutual learning by identifying good practice
    • contribute to policy development at EU level
    • identify and engage with stakeholders
  • We have both:
    • a time-limited objective – must be project-managed
    • a permanent capacity-building objective – the process is important
  • Communities of practice:
    • groups of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly – Etienne Wenger

Ruth Santos, Ecotec, 2005

The process
  • Is not command-and-control – relies on shared objectives
  • Financial procedures should obscure the collaboration on the content
  • Means peer-to-peer communication – equal status
  • This requires channels
    • personal contact and exchange, build up shared understanding, enthusiasm, teamwork
    • social networking technology was invented for this Socialeconomy.pl + Wikipreneurship
