Deliverables

  • Reports on preparation actions for the international intervention model

    6 individual country reports in the national languages and 1 general report in English for the entire partnership summing up in full detail organizational features and issues, approaches and outcomes of the following subsequent steps: - Setting up of the network of 6 SIMPLA National Focal Points (NFPs) - Selection and appointment of 6 expert panels connected to the NFPs’ network - Elaboration of a transnational ‘vade mecum’ to support participation, negotiation, conflict resolution - Organization of 9 focus group sessions in the 9 pilot territories - Organization of 9 workshops in the 9 pilot territories - Definition of a final strategic document, the ‘SIMPLA manifesto’

  • SIMPLA guidelines - draft version 1.0

    SIMPLA guidelines are developed in three subsequent versions, each updating and enhancing the previous one (version 1.0, in English month 12, in all partners’ languages, month 13 ; version 2.0, month 21 ; version 3.0, month 33). The SIMPLA guidelines address local authorities and accompany them step-by-step in the process of developing integrated, multi-sector planning tools that blend and harmonize approaches, methodologies, and solutions used in SEAPs and SUMPs. The guidelines are written jointly by the partnership in subsequent steps during the first 12 months. The SIMPLA guidelines are organized as a ‘road-map’, each stage being subsequent to the previous and preparatory for the next. The SIMPLA manifesto (D 2.2) opens the guidelines as a preface. Once the version in English is accepted an validated by all NFPs, the guidelines are translated into the languages of the six partner countries (ready by month 13) in Austria the national version of the guidelines will be an adaptation to the national context leading to a document called “Harmonization of KEMs and Mobilitätskonzepten” (see task 3.1.5).

  • SIMPLA manifesto

    The SIMPLA Manifesto is based on the final reports drafted in each country and summarizing the key National Focal Points conclusions and recomendations. Supported by experts and with cooperation from all partners, the network of SIMPLA NFPs develops and adopts a strategic document that defines the concept of integrated multi-sector plan, the main operating principles guiding the process and the support methodology implemented by the partnership. This strategic document, ready by month 12, is the basis for all further developments and sets the foundations for the guidelines and the online observatory, capacity building and coaching actions and further dissemination of the SIMPLA approach and methodology with the new NFPs to be created after the end of the project.

  • Communication and dissemination plan and monitoring system

    Two different yet complementary kinds of activities are envisaged within WP7. Throughout the duration of the project, the partnership’s effort will concentrate mainly on communication and promotion activities, thus to raise awareness and involve all the target groups identified. During the last semester in particular, PPs will collaborate to disseminate and exploit the results at the widest possible level, including beyond the project geographical boundaries. Following this twofold approach, at the starting phase of the project the WP coordinator develops a “Communication plan and monitoring system” in order to outline the strategy to follow, the role played by each partner and the tools, channels and activities’ scheduling. Another important working document, the “Plan for disseminating and exploiting the project’s results”, will also be developed: it represents a strategic document to create the conditions for further branching out of project activities and foster replication in other EU countries not directly involved in the partnership. To assess the effectiveness of the communication and dissemination initiatives and get control of progress, a monitoring procedure will be drafted and attached to the communication guidelines to be proposed by the WP leader and agreed among all project partners.

  • SIMPLA online observatory

    "The SIMPLA online observatory (ready in its initial version at month 12) leads the viewer on a journey through the subsequent stages in the definition of a SIMPLA integrated, multi-sector plan. Each individual step reports the related contents in the guidelines with examples, models and templates to download and links to other relevant sites. Moreover, the online observatory grows with the project, offering: training materials from in-class training; recordings from webinars; reports from coaching sessions; a database of plans developed in the framework of the project (plans are reported or linked in the national language, but a descriptive fiche in English allows any visitor to understand and learn the main issues). The SIMPLA observatory is not a mere replication of other existing portals (as ELTIS and the Covenant of Mayors portal), although reference to these and links will indeed be vastly used, since the scope and purpose of the action here are innovative and therefore all contents and materials are seen from a different perspective: not the development of a SEAP, of a SUMP or any other policy/plan, but the integration and harmonization of the above, which is the main purpose and guiding principle, each content serving as an example or a best practice, complementary and coherent with the more general road-map setting. So the SIMPLA online observatory could be held as the ""trait d'union"" between the portals specialised just on SUMP or SEAP, guiding cities in melting these recommendations into a single vision for their city."
