Good Practice

The good practice examples about start-up is an important outputs of the project

First phase

Each partner has researched the best examples of start-up on their territory. At the end of this first phase it was held the comparative evaluation of the acquired data, to choose examples considered most effective based on objective parameters and shared. We see the following research carried out by each partner.

The document contains the result of the Good practice (GP) research under the project lifetime.

The research about good practice examples is integrated with a Preliminary research about available tools, websites and activities that encourage start-up activities present and available in each partner own country and also in the rest of Europe.

It is composed by 5 examples from each partner.

CRITERIA used to select GPs:

  • Innovative
  • Realistic Implementation
  • Impact assessment
  • Transferability in another context/country
  • Viability/Self-sufficiency – capable of normal growth and development

Second phase

Here’s Good Practice about start-up (project output) that was developed after the assessment of content during the meeting of the first year of the project.

Partners then evaluated their own and each other’s good practice examples using one additional criterion:

Detailed description of the GP supported also by images.

For each good practice example, partners could give a score from 1 (bad) to 3 (optimal) for each of the seven elements. The coordinator then collated these scores to determine the best practice example submitted by each partner. A summary of the evaluation of the good practice examples of each partner is below, followed by the most highly rated example from each partner.

The Best Practice examples selected are about:

  • Support to start-ups both public (growth program) and private (seed investment, incubator)
  • National Competition for Youth
  • Start-up activities in innovatavice sectors (medical/technology and APP for mobile devices)
