Report on transferability of initiatives aiming at improving the social and physical environment in deprived urban areas

The report analyses transferability of initiatives aiming at improving the social and physical environment in deprived urban areas as investigated through the national reports and case studies in the NEHOM project.

The conclusion is that transferability, i.e. openings and barriers in relation to import/export of initiatives from place to place in Europe in general depends on six conditions formulated in general ways as:
- Institutional (governmental) background;

- Policy frameworks and how initiatives fit into national programmes;

- Strategy features, how roles are defined and whether local focus is on economic, physical or social regeneration;

- Financial possibilities and the role of local funds;

- Local neighbourhood conditions;

- The relation between residents, their trust towards each other, and their willingness to cooperate with professionals and get better educated for needed tasks.

The report gives a general comparison of the investigated initiatives and their transferability potentials and ends up with a comparison between NEHOM and other projects in the EU 5th framework programme.
