Expected outcomes of the project

Methods & tools

The methods/tools and general portfolio of policy actions provided by the toolkit validated by participating regions which are sensitive to their differing starting points.

Knowledge exchange

Collaboration with the Joint Action on Health Inequalities, other EU projects and participating regions results in an evolving practical knowledge database with at least 15 good practice case examples informing local actions to address: access to health care, health-related behaviours, living and working conditions.

In participating (micro) regions the knowledge generated by the project is accessible, practical and informs local planning for the egional and local action groups.

Capacity and competency

Participating regions show competency & confidence in using social innovation to provide guidance for planning & implementing actions where current evidence is not available or limited.

Action planning

Regions participating in the project will demonstrate an ability to prepare region-specific action plans (10 maximum) that are evidence based, show integration with wider regional development plans through clear relevance to one of more objectives of the plan/strategy and are financially sustainable.


Project learning is cascaded into other (micro) regions in participating MS to inform preparation for the next SF period through locally sensitive dissemination programmes.


A minimum of 3 participating regions have strengthened adoption of their action plans through conceptual development of a project/systems-level initiative that addresses one or more priority actions.

A minimum of 4 participating regions have conducted a review of existing regional policy/strategy as a result of taking part in the project.

SF managing authorities, MoH & EC line directorates use project findings to review and improve the overall processes for the use of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) at regional & national levels in participating MS & at EU level in line with adopted Europe 2020 & Cohesion Policy priorities.
