The data collection stage of this research on open innovation and EU Twinning Projects has been finished! It has taken us around 3 months to do so, but we have made it, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank again to all those professionals that have kindly accepted to collaborate with this research project completing a pretty long questionnaire.
Thus, 107 participants have completed the online questionnaire from 22 different countries from Europe and its neighbourhood area. Countries as geographically distant such as Finland and Armenia, the United Kingdom and Tunisia, or Spain and Turkey (see the map).
Around 75% of the respondents in the sample have worked in Twinnings as Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA) , while the rest have done so under the aegis of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENPI).
As for twinning experience, roughly 25% of participants have more than 6 years experience in Twinning projects, other 25% of the sample, 3 to 4 years experience, and 35%, 1 to 2 years. On the other hand, 44% has worked only in 1 twinning project, around 20% of the sample has participated in 2 projects, and roughly 35% of the sample in 3 twinnings or more.
In the upcoming weeks we will be posting some interesting outputs of the research.
