Purpose and goal
The overall aim of the project is to prevent and reduce social risks in society. The initiative phase (step 1) of the project extends from May 2013 to January 2014, During this phase the goal is to form a constellation of participants and to develop a plan to start off the project. Experts, scientists and people with practical experience from preventive work in the social risk field have been formed in groups. The formed groups of people involve important local, regional and national stakeholders.
Results and expected effects
During the initiative phase we have managed to form a very strong constellation of members in order to take the next step in the project. The project has enlightened us in that the decision support method and associated research database has large potential. Key stakeholders are involved in different ways in the project. One example is Nethouse Örebro AB, with extensive experience to develop decision support methods. Another is an expert and a reference group.
Approach and implementation
Efforts to create a constellation of stakeholders have been an instructive and important process in order to prepare for the next step. The work group has invited experts, scientists and people with practical experience of prevention efforts related to social risks. We have received positive feedback when presenting our project ideas and confirmation that the method is relevant. Overall, the work group meetings with stakeholders have provided us with valuable knowledge and a better understanding of the need to continue developing the ideas of a future decision support method.
