Key determinants

  • Building strong and strategic networks is undoubtedly among the most fundamental resources that a CitESS model can count on. Engaging multi-sector and multi-level actors and organisations from the Public, private, Academia and civil society sectors allows CitESS to access their respective networks, therefore being able to leverage, connect and catalyse all the needed resources to support entrepreneurs and SSE initiatives in a given territory. Hence such strategic networks are key to setting up the CitESS platform facilitating the integration and co-production of support services.

Self-assessment questions
