What is the Replicability Toolkit?
The capitalization and dissemination of good practices have the potential to inform and inspire similar experiences and solutions through a multiplicative global effect on local communities. Against this backdrop, the aim of the Replicability Toolkit, elaborated by MedRiSSE partner ARCO – Action Research for CO-development, is to build on the learnings and capitalization of 5 EU funded projects, namely MedTOWN, MoreThanAJob, MedUP!, IESS! and RUWOMED. In particular, for each project, good practices of SSE, social innovation and co-production approach were identified and thoroughly analysed and assessed. Hence, readers such as policymakers, public servants, and SSE practitioners can hereby find preliminary guidance and resources to consider replicating such initiatives in other contexts and territories. Firstly, the toolkit includes a methodological section explaining the evaluation framework elaborated and followed by ARCO researchers to carry out the analysis of the 5 identified good practices. The second part of the Toolkit presents the 5 Roadmaps which showcase the good practices and the key outcomes of the analysis, which intends to be a practical and easy-to-read guide for readers.
