IN-CUBA outputs

Here you can find the Intellectual Outputs delivered by the Project Partnership

  • IO1 – Analysis of users needs and requirements to develop an incubator methodology based on co-production for people with intellectual disability: This analysis focuses on the results of the ENABLE project and the experiences of the partners involved, as well as on the situation of entrepreneurship for people with disability, in particular focusing on the existing literature at European and International level.
  • IO2 – Report: levers and obstacles in the access to entrepreneurship for people with intellectual disability: this outputs, which is formally a research survey, aims at pointing out how entrepreneurship is accessible at European level for people with intellectual disability, and what are the main barriers in this regard. The research wants to show what are the systems in place, to what extent they are accessible, and what development opportunities could be envisaged.
  • IO3 – Business incubator Toolkit: methodology, based on co-production, to develop accessible business incubator services for people with intellectual disability.  IO3 is the main output of IN-CUBA, and consists in a methodology based on co-production to supports the development of ideas and projects to transform them into enterprises (considered in its widest meaning). This Output is the result of 3 components: 20%: Inputs from experts and incubators; 20%: Results of IO2, Levers and obstacles in the access to entrepreneurship for people with Intellectual Disability; 60%: Co-productive Focus Groups have been organised in each country involved to discuss with users, their families, and the community, enterprises and the support that is needed to set up an activity. The result of these 3 components is a methodology for incubation divided in 5 steps: 1) Enabling, empowering (triggering potential); 2) Collecting, generating and developing ideas; 3) Idea Development; 4) Stabilisation; Feasibility, Impact, Evaluation.
  • IO4 – Report Pilot Actions: testing the co-produtive methodology for incubating enterprises for people with intellectual disability. This document summarises the results of the pilot action that tested the co-productive methodology developed in IO3. The testing phase is a very important phase of the project, as it allowed to put into practice the elements elaborated by the partnership and get significant feedback from all the users involved. These feedbacks, together with the evaluation reports (IO5), helped updating and refining the methodology.  Originally planned and organised via physical co-productive focus-groups, the development of this output has been affected by the confinement measures that have been adopted in all the countries involved. Nevertheless, even in face of an uncertain situation, all partners manifested a strong commitment to move on and work online when physical meetings were not possible. In particular, thanks to the experience already developed by OpenGroup in the development of digital social services, all partners were able to organise effective online co-productive focus groups.
