Work Package 3


Regional Government of Cantabria

Capitalisation of the project will guarantee sustainability and that the projects outputs will be used after the project lifetime

About Work Package 3

Each partner brings with them experience from other projects and work strands. The project will capitalise on that in the early stages by ensuring each partner contributes their learning. Equally the project will disseminate the knowledge and experience gained through a final conference and a legacy website.

The project capitalisation strategy will be based on two main pillars:

  1. Capitalisation of previous experiences from other Interreg projects through the application of relevant lessons learned, methodologies and deliverables to the Atlantic CultureScape context
  2. Guaranteeing the exploitation of the project results, and thus the overall project sustainability in the mid and long-term, through actions guaranteeing that the project outputs will be used after the project lifetime and applied to other contexts.

The activities related to the above-mentioned objectives will be carried out from the very beginning of the project and will involve all the partners under the coordination of the WP leader.

The first step will be defining a shared capitalisation strategy including both measures for implementation and transfer to the CultureScape context of the lessons learned in other Interreg projects and sustainability and exploitation actions.

The WP coordinator will draft a detailed capitalisation and sustainability plan that will be discussed during the first SC meeting in order to achieve an agreed, definitive version including the inputs from all the partners.

In order to guarantee the exploitation of the project outputs, their transfer to and application in other regions, Member States, public policy’s or policy makers beyond the partnership and their sustainability in the mid and long term run, a set of actions has been defined.

These actions will be based on the three-P sustainability concept (Elkington, 1997; Adams, 2006) considering sustainability based on Social, Environmental and Economic pillars.

To guarantee the transfer of the project outputs, specific actions have been included in the capitalisation and sustainability plan and will be based on three different approaches (actions are described in the following sections of this WP): – Direct Sustainability actions; – Vertical Sustainability actions; – Horizontal Sustainability actions.

The project SC commits to maintain all the online resources developed within the project available for at least 5 years after the end of the project and the partners will consider applying for other grants and further supporting the ICH industry in order to disseminate the project outputs further and to deepen and widen the project scope.
