Rationale

Text available in

The problem faced by the Developmental Partnership (PS) consists in the bureaucratic/welfare approach towards difficultly employable subjects and in the legislative actions concretely carried out by the public body. The consequent specific discrimination problem, therefore, is related to the exclusion of difficultly employable subjects and of their organisations from planning and managing policies and public actions.
With regard to employment law 482/1968, which controlled for over thirty years the disadvantaged subjects` starting of a job, it was considered a welfare obligation by the enterprises. The beginning of a job, in fact, does not take into account disabilities, people`s left skills, professional skills, professional figures, tasks, nor the job opportunities offered by the company. The beginning of a job is based on the worker`s position in a list determined by legal parameters (when they registered, their family members) with no reference to their skills. This makes the employers hostile: it caused 100,000 disadvantaged people to lose their job, and determined the failure of most part of the attempts bacause the companies dismissed 80% of the people sent by the employment offices. The incompatibility between worker (fast always lacking the necessary qualifications for a specific company) and the job itself (unknown by the public employee) determines supplì and demand not to meet. Disadvantaged people with weaker handicaps were less successful.
Except from some interesting innovations the reform law in this subject matter (law 68 of 1999) remains unchanged because aims at providing job opportunities for disadvantaged subjects - and therefore not desired by the companies - obliging the employers to hire them (this remains the central tool). In this way hiring disadvantaged people remains inside a `condition of social protection` that is to say in a welfare field that does not concern the enterprises. The law aims at building a functional structure as a link between the disadvantaged and his job opportunities, while it does not deal with the crux of the matter, that is to say the fact that there is a real job opportunity only when there is a strict relationship between the subject`s job skills and the `empowerment` condition.
The privileged interlocutor - the only one actually - of the state policies in this matter is, according to law 381/1991 and reconfirmed by law 68 of 1999, social cooperation. The first law committed to cooperative societies the task of finding job opportunities for disadvantaged people creating a new entrepreneurial figure and a new kind of enterprise: the social cooperative and the social cooperator that is to say the social entrepreneur and the social enterprise. This law establishes the register of social cooperatives that is a sort of certificate: the registered cooperatives are favoured in participating in competitions. Social cooperation becomes the only interlocutor of the public body, both national and local, as to disadsvantaged people`s job opportunities.
As a consequence, the interests of the enterprises prevailed and the disadvantaged people had always less job opportunities. In this way disadvanteged people`s share decreased in the period between 1993 and 2000 from 21,6% to 11% at a national level and from 24,1% to 16,7% in Friuli - Venezia Giulia.
The reform of the compulsory employment confirms such privileged relationship with social cooperatives: the article 12 gives them the task to employ temporarily disabled people. The most part of organisations belonging to the services sector remains excluded: in fact the social cooperatives represent just 2,1% of the 220 thousand non profit organisations counted in the last census. In Friuli - Venezia Giulia the non profit organisations are 6.119 units: 113 are social cooperatives and 5.685 are associations, only 1.475 of these are official associations. The exclusion of associationism - so spread in the territory but consisting of myriads of small and not much visible units - from policies menagement for the employment of disadvantaged people and from social/welfare services together with the role of the large and medium sized social cooperatives obscured the role and the visibility of these social enterprises which are more than 90% in the services sector.
The final result is represented by four thousand disadvantaged unemployed people (June 1999) in Friuli/Venezia Giulia when the disadvantaged people were about ten thousand: the specific unemployment rate is therefore 40% against a genaral unemployment rate of 5,6%. It is to be said that the rate remained the same in the last decade, so as to prove the difficulty in employing disadvantaged people. It should be added a number of discouraged people (this numer of people is difficult to count because there are no researches nor specific statistics), that is to say those people who are not employed because of the mere welfare approach already discussed and because they do not receive any social/welfare services. Therefore we can suppose that the number of unemployed people is still wider than the one registered in the employment offices and represents the subjects the Developmental Partnership (PS) is interested in for an extreme Entrepreneurship in an Independent Life.
The bureaucratic/welfare character of the public action and the final exclusion of recipients are far more marked with respect to the way social/welfare services are given. The investments are done in building and manteining physical structures whose function is to assure the mere biological survival of the disadvantaged subject. On the other side the services offered - personal welfare represents the crucial point of the action - are standard (the same assistance to everybody; but disadvanteged people have different characteristics), scarsely flexible (timetable, kind of services, etc.) and they are offered by not, or only a little, trained staff. Also where public services for disadvantage and disabled people exist (for example in northern Europe), their organisation and real assistance take into account the needs of the associations and not the ones of the recipients.
Both these types of action are not apt to assure equality and freedom and in particular employment: all these rights are difficult to reach because this approach frustrates people`s desire to be independent from their families and from institutions and the research of an adequate job itself. This resut is due to the fact that the recipients were excluded from the final phase of planning and mananagement of the welfare actions. In this way they could not have the possibility to plan services and organise them in a functional way for an independent life and future employment. People who are employed can value their abilities and skills, reach economic independence and social involvement: independent life and employment are therefore strictly interrelated.
The discrimination problem, with regard to the difficultly employable subjects, has to be faced therefore promoting an approach which rewards the individual subjects through processes based on the subjects` abilities which can lead to an independent choice both of a job and of an entrepreneurial activity on the one side and through the development of associationism on the other. This part of the services sector still has to show all its potentialities.

Objective

Text available in

Since the problem consists in the bureaucratic/welfare approach towards difficultly employable subjects and the concrete assistance provided by the public body, the general objective of the project of the Developmental Partnership (PS) is to experiment an entrepreneurial approach that enhances people and their reference organisations.
The general objective seems complex and this is why it is to be pursued by the attainment of an integrated system of sub/objectives closely linked to each other which are to be the following:
1. strong development of visibility and communication ability of associationism out of its actual fragmentation into thousands of minimal-size units which apparently lack originality, mission and future goals. This sub-objective makes associationism finally intervene in the sectorial politicies, so that its action would be evident and its subjects would be guaranteed by its efficiency and effectiveness;
2. focus on becoming network between partners promoting all possible synergies between different associations in order to encourage cultural exchange and the identification of common working plans useful to favour one`s members employment and building, where possible, solidarity and business relationships;
3. promotion and consolidation of the culture of Independent Life and of the development of abilities (minimal, if severely disabled people) in difficultly employable subjects, civil society and local institutions. This sub-objective enables to show the directly interested subjects, that is to say the `actors` of the development, and local society the advantages coming from abandoning a bureaucratic/welfare approach pattern;
4. reinforcing the ability of associationism to build a network connected with the `actors` of the local development . This is done by planning and managing a series of actions aiming at evaluating local resources and experimenting a plan of action with the public subjects. This sub-objective enables to promote confidence in the various associations and to identify common cooperation fields between associationism and the local public bodies;
5. improvement of the quality of the social enterprise favouring the introduction of innovative management methods which enable to improve the internal involvement in decisions and managing experience. This sub-objective enables a more direct and transparent relationship between different subjects who work in associations and social enterprises;
6. promoting self-entrepreneurship in difficultly employable subjects through planning, implementing and starting autonomous working processes which help reaching the Independent Life. Supporting the starting-up of an enterprise is an antithetical approach with reference to the bureaucratic/welfare one carried out by the local and national public body and it is more effective approach than the one which delegates third parties. Consequently the sub-objective aims to show the opportunity to make difficultly employable subjects able to develop self-entrepreneurial working processes and suggest a specific support in working and enterprise setting up policies;
7. overcoming a bureaucratic/welfare logic while providing social/welfare services through the creation of the professional figure of the Assistant in Independent Life. He helps the more disadvantaged subjects to start a job. The sub-objective enables to reach, in an innovative way, a double goal: re-defining the different categories of social/welfare services, with regard to the real recipients` needs and, at the same time, allowing the more severely disabled to start self-entrepreneurial autonomous working processes;
8. the start and the development of ethical finance (an ethical fund) as a trial to overcome the lack of specific tools for the promotion of difficultly employable subjects` self-entrepreneurship and associationism in general. It combines pubblic and private resources and uses them to promote the most significant enterprises according to the subjects who give the funds. This sub-objective is absolutely new in the territory of this project and in Friuli - Venezia Giulia. It enables the subjects the Developmental Partnership (PS) is interested in to start-up an enterprise and the definition of a plan taking into account its possibile future development on a regional basis;
9. favouring the difficultly employable subjects to approach a training system in order to develop employment education and entrepreneurial training. Since the training planning phase the characteristics of the difficultly employable subjects have to be taken into account. Suitable tools (psychological, technological) have to be built to overcome the difficulties in participating to the planned activities. The sub-objective aims to teach such subjects job and enterprise culture, entrepreneurial, managerial and operative knowledge which enable them to make a rational choice at the start of the autonomous and entrepreneurial activity.

The general strategy proposed by the Developmental Partnership (PS) `Estreme Entrepreneurship for an Independent Life` consists in fighting the welfare approach and the difficultly employable subjects` emargination through the proposition of an entrepreneurial approach which highlights the role of people and of the realted organisations. This general strategy aims at removing any obstacle from the entrepreneurial choice by means of creating the conditions for its effective implementation, that is to say:
1. developing communication and evaluation processes (social balance) which enable to build up a confidential and planning relationship between difficultly employable subjects and associationism as against institutions, enterprises and , more genearally, local society. In particular a pattern of social balance has to be planned and experimented in twenty social enterprises;
2. experimenting a training action which could make the most of the skills left to severly disabled people (creation of innovative social enterprise). The absolute centrality of the final recipients implies their central role in all phases: from planning to managing the action. This implies the realisation of a course dealing with enterprise setting up for 20 severly disabled people which ends with the start-up phase;
3. experimenting an action devoted to self-entrepreneurship processes and strengthening of small associations and start up of new enterprises (creation of social innovative enterprises). This action should put into evidence the final recipients and their skills in social enterprises creation in front of the local society. In particular a course in social innovative enterprise creation, ending with the start-up phase, has to be followed by 20 subjects (disabled and respective associations);
4. starting an experimentation which could finance the development of social enterprises managed directly by the recipients and their relatives through the creation of a financial tool dedicated to the categories of subjects. In particular an ethical Fund has to be planned, started and experimented by the financing of about ten social enterprises for a total amount of about 500 million lire;
5. creating a favourable environment for Independent Life education. It focuses on the disabled individual, on making the most of the skills left to severly disabled people, on the possibility for them to rule their own assistance cycle: an approach to extreme entrepreneurship. It completes and makes concretely attainable what was said at point 3 together with the creation of the professional figure of the Assistant in Independent Life. This training activity aims at creating 20 personal Assistants in Independent Life who help severely disabled people.
In comparison to what was said in the candidature Form for the admission to phase 1, all the elements of the strategy are reconfirmed with the only one exception of the direct management of all social/welfare services dedicated to disabled people with severe physical handicaps. In fact at first the varieties, the qualities and the ways services are provided through the creation of the professional figure of the Assistant in Independent Life seemed the most important point to make. (This figure is defined and experimented throuout the whole project and it is intended to help severely disabled people with their Independent Life in particolar in their entrepreneurial process) Its integration into the current social/welfare services offered by the public body can be discussed in the Equal programme.

The process and the objectives of this project are innovative both with respect to the context and to the results. The choice of interrelated actions to face the different stages of the discrimination problem shows this innovation. Therefore the project implements process innovations with respect to the creation of an extreme entrepreneurship, the innovative professional figure of the personal assistant who represents the central point of the Independente Life pattern and whose collective agreement has to be specific.
The objectives are innovative as well because the fight against the welfare approach and the emargination of difficultly employable subjects and their organisations by means of an entrepreneurial approach is quite different from the bureaucratic/welfare character pubblic of action in the employment field and in the public policies devoted to these individuals. The importance of this innovative approach is explained as follows: identifying two new interlocutors of the public policies, that is to say associationism and the final recipients; creating new employment through the Independent Life pattern and the choice of an extreme etrepreneurship; innovating relations and knocking down the fences existing between the non connected worlds of welfare, training, production, policies directed to the job market, finance; innovating the managing methods of social enterprises favouring transparence and communication skill; involving the final beneficiaries in the development of their specific public policies through the definition of the professional figure of the personal Assistant in the Independent Life; innovating regional financing tools in order to create an ethical fund dedicated to associationism; innovating the training system favouring the disadvantaged subjects through the planning and use of specific support activities.
The innovation of the context is extremely important because both the one referring to the process and the one to the objectives influence the training, social/welfare, financial, associationism system and the system of the local bodies which are interested in employing the most disadvantaged subjects (the Provinces in the first place). Moreover they innovate the collective agreements starting contracts, tools, policies and forms of concrete cooperation. These innovations are without precedent, neither at a local nor at a national level, anticipating the possibilities of law 383/2000 and 328/2000.

5.18.2.1 Description of the beneficiaries` involvement process

The final beneficiaries` involvement process is an integral part of the project. The project was thought and planned by a group of organisations: the ones managed by the beneficiaries or those where they play an important role are the most important. The project is based on the fact that providing direct tools and resources is the most effective way to improve their condition: they know better than anyone the discrimination they have to suffer and, in a structured group, they could start exchange, comparison and study processes to identify the most suitable solutions. The partnership structure answeres to the need to experiment the creation of a series of resources (human ones in the first place) for the final beneficiaries and their organisations. These latter are often weak and not visibile and, therefore, not always able to use those resources which they would know how to use better than anyone else. Some weak subjects do not have any reference organisation or do not share the existing ones: for these people a wider association world could represent an opportunity to get out of isolation and improve their condition immediately.
Obviously, the project includes a wider range of weak subjects. It is therefore necessary to identify not only potential entrepreneurs, but also people to be involved in research and training activities, interlocutors who partecipate in the ethical fund or in the social balance, whose validation has to be shared by the final beneficiaries and their organisations.
The involvement process starts by spreading information and making people aware over all the partnership territory. The project includes, in fact, a complete field of actions named `actions promoting weak subjects` potentialities` such as advertising, orientation, individual advice activities, through a network of `windows` easy to be reached by the final beneficiaries. The connection of such windows with the partnership territorial public services and the promotion of specific actions will increase the knowledge opportunities and make orientation easier. In this way it will be possibile to reach subjects belonging to every risk group who could give their contribution to the implementation of the project.

5.18.3.1 Description of the partner involvement process

The complexity and the different aspects of the problem discussed by the project imply the involvement of many partners belonging to different fields. The partner involvement process was characterized by: a series of meetings between the partners and the ones who joined the project aimed at defining the problem and the strategy of general action and, in particular, our activities and our plan of action; a series of internal meetings of the Developmental Partnership aimed at planning more in detail the fields of action by the definition of each partner`s role; a series of internal and external meetings of the Developmental Partnership aimed at recovering partners selected in the arrangement and admission phase but not yet acquired, in particular public bodies; the drawing up of a mailing list to ease the mutual exchange of information, opinions and integration to the documents discussed during the Developmental Partnership meetings; the identification of a financial institution which could support the ethical Fund.
Moreover on 3 April 2002 a Temporary Enterprise Association was formally formed as it was established in the Form for the admission to phase 1. The following bodies were created for the partners` complete involvement and the correct working of the Developmental Partnership: the Partners Assembly including all subjects involved. Its function is general: coordinating the various actions, definition of tasks and responsibilities, monitoring and final verification/evaluation; the Governing Body, elected by an Assembly, whose task is to manage the project; the Project Leader, whose task is to make the project transparent, promoting and mantaining relations with the outside. In accordance with the philosophy of the project, intended to highlight beneficiaries` role, the role of the project leader is assigned to a representative chosen by the beneficiaries themselves; the Project Manager, the mandatary (IRES-FVG), which is responsible for activity planning, time menagement and human and material resources.
The operations, the decisional transparence and the participation of all partners will be guaranteed by the following system of thematic working groups, named by the Assembly: Research and documentation working group; Training and technical assistance in the start up phase working group; beneficiaries working group; public bodies working group.

Agreement Summary

Text available in

The organisation procedures adopted for the management of this development project (DP) were selected to provide a rational organisation model appropriate to a project of an experimental nature. This DP is complex, both in terms of the number and diversity of the Italian and international partners involved and because of the ambitious objectives and expected results the project proposes to achieve. The experiment therefore needs to be supported by an organisation model that is balanced in its distribution of workload and responsibilities, with no space for extremes of self-promotion or marginality. The model focuses on the organisation and distribution of tasks but also stresses the motivation of the group and its desire to achieve something innovative that will bring useful change to the disabled and, more generally, to the third sector and the regional community. Three operational procedures relate to responsibility for direction and management of the DP. Taken together, these procedures represent the operational bodies of all the organisations involved in the DP. The three organs are the ATI Meeting, which involves all partners in the DP, the DP Board of Directors, in which the most active and committed partners take part, and finally the Co-ordination Office, formed by the ATI management group with responsibility for day-to-day management of the DP. Members of the Co-ordination Office will include the Project Leader and the Project Manager, as well as the administrative and technical staff required for qualified management of the DP initiative. Self-assessment and evaluation are guaranteed by IRES-FVG and the two universities of Udine and Trieste. This intervention is necessary to set up and co-ordinate the evaluation plan and individual products, draft the information and knowledge requirements of the final beneficiaries, and to orient the information campaigns and themed workshops, periodically evaluating the results. For the management of transnational activity, the following features have been identified in the organisational model: the transnational manager for the DP involving northern European partners; participation in the co-ordinating group regarding the agreement with partners from Greece and Portugal; workgroups for the main topic areas; and structures and procedures for evaluation, monitoring and mainstreaming.
Financial planning will be based on the principle of cost participation and mechanisms of reciprocity, determining contributions to the management of the shared elements of the DP in the form of work and resources of roughly the same nature and quantity from the various participating partners.
Relations with regional and ministerial bodies will be maintained by IRES through the Co-ordination Office.
Financial management of the DP will be implemented by the constitution of a work group comprising the administrators of organisations required to manage their own cost centre. The work group will deal with planning and management of DP financial resources, ensuring unitary management of accounts and the certification of all cost centres.
Management of DP financial contributions will be effected by drafting a unified budget for all cost centres participating in the partnership agreement.
The reference body will make periodic payments of contributions to the various partners in the DP in proportion to their work commitment and the budgets laid down. Partners in the DP are required to issue the appropriate accounting documents attesting expenses borne.

Idea, a non-profit association - the Italian acronym stands for independence, disability and self-determination - was founded on 12 December 1998 with the aim of promoting and safeguarding the right to independent living of the seriously disabled. The initiative was started by a group of young quadriplegics who wanted to promote a new philosophy of life for those with serious or very serious physical and sensory disabilities, drawing on the experience of Enil, the European Network for Independent Living. Idea is enrolled in the regional register of non-profit organisations and in the regional register of voluntary associations. Its membership is made up exclusively of persons with serious, permanent disabilities and limited personal independence. According to the Idea philosophy, disabled individuals should be able to make decisions about their own lives through the development of personal resources. In this way, each individual will be able to envisage an independent life offering equal opportunities to those enjoyed by the non-disabled. The association offers its services as an agency and information desk for data and advice on independent living. The main objective of Idea is to work so that access to a personal assistant is actually available. This is a condition without which it is not possible to talk about equal rights and self-determination. Through personal assistants, special institutions and locations, such as communal residences, would become superfluous and isolation in the home could be avoided. For that purpose, Idea promoted in 1999 the `first course for independent living`, which dealt with topics related to personal carers, modern technology in support of the disabled individual, entry into the world of work, overcoming architectural barriers and mobility. On 20 May 2000, idea organised a regional convention on `the right to independent living for individuals with disabilities, at which papers were read by a representative of Enil italia, a member of parliament, the regional councillor with responsibility for health and social policies, administrators and disabled. The aim was to raise awareness among politicians and administrators of independent living-related topics, as sanctioned in Italian law number 162 dated 1998, to demand an increase in regional funding that would make it possible to implement the right to independent living, and to propose a document laying down priorities for the allocation of grants and the simplification of the procedure for paperwork relating to independent living projects. Since one of Idea`s aims is to study and encourage the use of all technology that can support independent living for the disabled in their own homes, the association is working on a home automation project called the `smart home`, to be located at the `Progetto Spilimbergo` centre in collaboration with the centre`s management committee and the local authority of Spilimbergo, in the province of Pordenone.

The Associazione Paraplegici del Friuli-Venezia Giulia (Friuli-Venezia Giulia Paraplegics Association) was founded in 1983 to pursue the following principal aims:
a) the complete satisfaction of the basic and social needs of those suffering from demyelinating diseases;
b) their broad integration into society;
c) their ongoing progress in all sectors of civil life.
The Association manages the `Progetto Spilimbergo` centre, which hosts more than one hundred tetra- and paraplegics every year. The structure is unique in its category, offering users rehabilitation and welfare activities and providing a major point of reference for cultural and sporting events. Rehabilitation therapy administered by rehabilitation therapists is flanked by a wide range of sports for users to choose from, including swimming (Olympic-sized open-air pool and indoor pool), basketball, volleyball, target shooting, track sports, hand-powered tricycling and table tennis. The Association is strongly committed to supporting the healthcare activities of the unipolar spinal unit at Udine. To that end, it collaborates in the context of integrated healthcare with various units of the National Health Service in Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
Since its foundation, the Association has been committed to encouraging cultural debate on the condition of the disabled. It has organised many events of an artistic and cultural nature, in which well-known personalities from the world of the arts have taken part, to focus discussion of disability on proposals of growth for all. The initiatives grouped under the title `Towards a Critique of Prejudice` included a meeting with the director, Marco Ferreri, in 1995 at Spilimbergo, talks by writers Fulvio Tomizza and Sergio Saviane in 1996, an exhibition at Tarvisio by disabled artists from the Alpe-Adria area in 1996, a visit and talk by the director Ermanno Olmi in 1997, various presentations of the novel El Coce by Sergio Saviane in 1997 and the presentation of the catalogue I Girasoli with the photographer Oliviero Toscani in 1999. The Association also performs an important role in information and prevention by increasing awareness, using all media, of the causes and consequences of injury to the spinal cord. The Association publishes a monthly journal entitled El Cochecito.
The Association organises, promotes and supports sport played for the disabled on its own or in collaboration with other associations, sports clubs, regional federations and national federations. The range of disciplines practised by athletes is large, including wheelchair basketball, table tennis, swimming, hand-powered tricycling, athletics and many others. Sports events of regional, national and international significance are organised at the `Progetto Spilimbergo` centre. The Association`s members include two Italian tetraplegic champions and about ten members take part in the hand-powered tricycle marathon.

The structure of the University of Udine involved in the project is the Policlinico Universitario a Gestione Diretta (Directly Managed University Polyclinic, or PUGD). The PUGD is an independent, University-owned enterprise that offers highly specialised, first-class specialist services to users with acute healthcare needs.
The PUGD is a hospital with a nationwide reputation where healthcare activities are inseparably linked to the teaching and research programmes of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Udine.
The operations and functions of the PUGD are laid down in the Internal Regulations, which are in turn inspired by the principles expressed in the Statute of Autonomy of the University of Udine, and are performed by adapting the principles established for Hospital Enterprises to the specific conditions of the University.
The Polyclinic promotes, develops and carries out qualified research activities in diagnostics and therapeutics, providing a multiple-specialisation healthcare structure for the residents of the Friuli Venezia Giulia region and, in certain specialisations, a benchmark facility both in Italy and internationally.
Healthcare activities
Plans and programmes for healthcare activities are established periodically on the basis of agreements between the University and the Regional Authority, with reference to analyses of the population`s healthcare demand and negotiation of the supply of healthcare services with other health-industry structures in the designated territory, allocation of funding by the national health service and compliance with mandatory regional healthcare objectives.
Teaching and training activities
At Operational Unit level, the PUGD carries out teaching and training activities stipulated in Faculty programmes as well as other such activities aimed at contributing to scientific knowledge and understanding the healthcare needs of the PGUD`s users.
Research activities
Research is a key component of PGUD activities and its fundamental duty. The PGUD establishes the necessary conditions for the performance of research activities, encourages the creation of research groups and supports the exchange of scientists and experience with other universities and scientific institutions in Italy and abroad.

The University of Trieste comprises twelve faculties (architecture, economics, psychology, political science, pharmacy, letters and philosophy, medicine and surgery, physical, natural and mathematical sciences, engineering, law, the school of modern languages for interpreters and translators, and education). The structures directly involved in the project are the department of psychology and the department of electrotechnics, electronics and computer science of the faculty of engineering. The department of psychology is the sole site of the research doctorate in experimental psychology and one of the sites of the research doctorates in experimental pedagogy and the developmental psychology. The department was created in 1990 as a development of the institute directed for thirty years by Gaetano Kanizsa. The department provides teaching and scientific facilities to support the activities of the degree course in psychology, and for basic and applied research. The scientific activity of the department of psychology is organised into various sectors, research groups and laboratory groups. The intervention areas are: education and learning, memory and imagination, neuropsychology, thought and reasoning, cognitive psychophysiology, psycholinguistics, animal psychology and comparative neurosciences, the psychology of sleep and dreams, the psychology of work organisation, the psychology of perception, psychology and phenomenology, social psychology and the psychology of the personality, cognitive and social development, and the development of language. The department has many collaborative projects with researchers from other scientific structures in Italy and abroad. Finance for research comes from the MURST, the CNR, the EU, the Human Frontier Science Program and various other public and private bodies. Each year, the department organises the Kanizsa Lecture at Trieste and sponsors the Academy of Aphasia at Bressanone.
The department of electrotechnics, electronics and computer science was created on 1 January 1984 with the conversion of the institute of electrotechnics and electronics, whose premises and cultural orientation it has inherited. The department develops projects in the following intervention areas: electrical installations, electrical machines and drive systems, electrical and electronic measurement systems, electrotechnics, electronics, electromagnetic fields, telecommunications, information theory, computer science, bioengineering, automatics, operations research, and optoelectronics.

CISL is an organisation that represents workers from the various areas (agriculture, industry, civil servants, services) and pensioners, without any political or religious prejudice, through the trade union structures. In fact, CISL, although it has a significant number of workers from the catholic world, is a laic-based organisation, which tries to defend the interests of its members. For this reason, CISL does not only refer to the employed, but through a suitable political development, also assists the wide range of those who have a marginal or precarious position on the labour market (work at home, illegal work, etc) and those are excluded (the unemployed, youth, women, senior citizens, the disabled, etc.).
CISL is a confederation of trade unions forming a double organisation working at various territorial levels. On the one hand there are the trade structures, which organise workers in similar production fields (for example, in the chemical and metal-mechanical industry, banks, transportation, local bodies), on the other hand, there is an inter-trade organisation where all trades are members. Besides, its usual trade union activities representing the workers and dealing with disputes, CISL also offers a series of services guaranteed by bodies and associations connected to it. Among these are: CAF CISL offering its tax services; INAS - National Social Assistance Institute, assisting the workers with their rights regarding health, social security and social security assistance; ETSI - Italian Social Tourist Board, a specific CISL structure for the activities relating to social tourism, free time, culture and sport; SICET, Tenant, Housing and Territory Union, the association of tenants promoted jointly by CISL and ACLI to affirm the right to housing, social use of the territory and to protect the tenant in his/her relations with the property owners, whether they are private or public; ADICONSUM, consumer and user association, established in 1997.
The Pordenone branch of the CISL, with its sector-specific categories (for example, engineering workers), has, working in collaboration with support organisations for the disabled, stipulated agreements with a number of local companies for the introduction of disabled people into the workplace.
In the province of Pordenone, the company that has stipulated most such agreements is Savio Macchine Tessili. The object of the agreements was to encourage work entry by identifying the most suitable jobs, in some cases specially adapting the jobs so that, as far as possible, disability would not be a restricting factor, and by appointing a tutor for the disabled workers.

IMPRENDITORIALITA` ESTREMA PER UNA VITA INDIPENDENTE

Rationale

Text available in

Il problema che la PS intende affrontare risiede nel carattere burocratico/assistenziale che permea l`approccio nei confronti dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e negli interventi legislativi concretamente realizzati da parte dell`operatore pubblico. Il problema di discriminazione specifico che ne consegue, pertanto, è quello relativo all`emarginazione dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e delle loro organizzazioni dalla progettazione e dalla gestione delle politiche e degli interventi pubblici.
Con riferimento all`aspetto dell`inserimento lavorativo la l. 482/1968 che ha regolamentato per oltre trenta anni l`avviamento al lavoro dei soggetti svantaggiati è stata considerata un obbligo assistenziale da parte delle imprese. L`avviamento al lavoro, infatti, non avviene tenendo conto delle disabilità, delle capacità residue e delle professionalità delle persone né delle figure professionali, delle mansioni e delle posizioni di lavoro che evidenziano le imprese interessate. L`avviamento al lavoro avviene sulla base della posizione del lavoratore in una graduatoria determinata da parametri giuridici (l`anzianità di iscrizione, i carichi familiari) completamente avulsi da qualsiasi riferimento alla capacità lavorativa. Ciò produce una forte ostilità da parte dei datori di lavoro che ha causato la perdita di cento mila posti di lavoro di persone svantaggiate, alimentato una diffusa situazione di contenzioso e determinato il fallimento della stragrande maggioranza degli avviamenti poiché le aziende hanno respinto l`80% degli avviati dagli uffici di collocamento. L`incompatibilità fra il lavoratore (quasi sempre privo della qualifica necessaria all`impresa) e la posizione di lavoro disponibile (sconosciuta al collocatore pubblico) determina questo evidente mancato incontro tra la domanda e l`offerta di lavoro. la quota minoritaria di successi ottenuti, infine, riguarda principalmente gli svantaggiati con i deficit più lievi.
Nonostante tutta una serie di novità interessanti, la legge di riforma del collocamento obbligatorio (la legge n. 68 del 1999) mantiene invariata la filosofia di fondo in quanto si propone di garantire l`accesso al mercato del lavoro a soggetti considerati svantaggiati - e come tali poco appetibili per le imprese - attraverso l`imposizione dell`obbligo di assunzione che rimane lo strumento centrale. L`assunzione degli svantaggiati rimane, dunque, all`interno di una `condizione di protezione sociale` ovvero in un ambito (assistenziale) che non viene ritenuto di competenza delle imprese. Il problema che la legge si pone, pertanto, é di dare vita ad una struttura funzionale capace di istituire un collegamento tra lo svantaggiato ed il mondo del lavoro mentre non affronta il nodo centrale rappresentato dal fatto che si realizzi l`opportunità dell`inserimento allorché vi è un legame stretto con la capacità lavorativa del singolo soggetto e una condizione di `empowerment`.
L`interlocutore privilegiato - unico, anzi - delle politiche statali di inserimento lavorativo dei disabili è la cooperazione sociale: scelta fatta una decina di anni fa con la promulgazione della legge 381/1991 e riconfermata con la legge 68 del 1999. La legge del 1991 affida alle cooperative di tipo b l`inserimento lavorativo degli svantaggiati riconoscendo nelle cooperative sociali una nuova figura imprenditoriale e una nuova tipologia d`impresa, vale a dire la cooperativa sociale ed il cooperatore sociale che hanno finito per coincidere con quella dell`imprenditore sociale e dell`impresa sociale. La legge istituisce l`albo delle cooperative sociali che prefigura una sorta di certificazione delle cooperative iscritte e, quindi, un vantaggio per la partecipazione a bandi ed appalti pubblici. Perciò l`interlocutore unico dell`operatore pubblico - nazionale e locale - in tema di inserimenti lavorativi degli svantaggiati è diventata la cooperazione sociale come testimoniano i numerosi protocolli d`intesa e gli accordi sottoscritti tra il mondo della cooperazione sociale e gli enti pubblici territoriali.
Un risultato di tale delega esclusiva ha portato al rallentamento della crescita della base societaria degli svantaggiati rispetto a quella dei soci normodotati e un analogo andamento degli inserimenti lavorativi in quanto prevalgono le logiche di impresa rispetto all`inserimento degli svantaggiati. tale fenomeno ha portato la quota dei soci svantaggiati a calare nel periodo compreso tra il 1993 ed il 2000 da una percentuale pari al 21,6% all`11% a livello nazionale e dal 24,1% al 16,7% nella regione Friuli - Venezia Giulia.
La legge di riforma del collocamento obbligatorio conferma tale rapporto privilegiato con la cooperazione sociale allorché all`art. 12 individua tale soggetto per la stipula di convenzioni finalizzate all`inserimento temporaneo dei disabili. rimangono escluse, invece, la stragrande maggioranza delle organizzazioni che formano il terzo settore: le cooperative sociali, infatti, rappresentano appena il 2,1% delle oltre 220 mila istituzioni non profit censite dal primo censimento appena concluso. In Friuli - Venezia Giulia la numerosità delle istituzioni non profit è pari a 6.119 unità di cui 113 sono cooperative sociali e 5.685 sono associazioni di cui 1.475 sono associazioni riconosciute. L`esclusione dell`associazionismo - così diffuso sul territorio ma composto da una miriade di piccole e piccolissime unità poco visibili - dalle gestione delle politiche per l`inserimento lavorativo degli svantaggiati e dei servizi socio/assistenziali ed il protagonismo delle cooperative sociali di grandi e medie dimensioni ha oscurato, di fatto, il ruolo e la visibilità di queste imprese sociali che rappresentano oltre il 90% delle organizzazioni presenti nel terzo settore.
Il risultato finale di questi andamenti è quello di avere una quantità di disoccupati superiore alle quattromila unità - stante ai soli dati del collocamento obbligatorio del giugno 1999 - nella regione Friuli/Venezia Giulia a fronte di una forza lavoro svantaggiata che si quantifica in oltre 10 mila unità: il tasso di disoccupazione specifico, pertanto, è pari al 40% contro un tasso generale di disoccupazione che, alla stessa data, era pari al 5,6%. Da sottolineare, inoltre, che il tasso è rimasto pressoché immutato nell`ultimo decennio a dimostrazione della difficoltà incontrata di incidere sullo zoccolo duro della disoccupazione dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili. a questo numero, peraltro, andrebbe aggiunto quello degli scoraggiati (che, tuttavia, é difficilmente quantificabile perché non esistono ricerche o statistiche specifiche), vale a dire quelle persone che non fanno parte della forza lavoro specifica perché ostacolati in tal senso dall`approccio meramente assistenziale visto in precedenza o perché non ricevono servizi socio/assistenziali a ciò finalizzati. E` ragionevole ipotizzare che lo `zoccolo duro` degli inoccupati, pertanto, sia ancora più ampio di quello registrato dal collocamento obbligatorio e che esso sia costituito proprio dalle categorie di soggetti di interesse della PS Imprenditorialità estrema per una Vita Indipendente.
Dal punto di vista della erogazione dei servizi socio/assistenziali il carattere burocratico/assistenziale dell`intervento pubblico e l`emarginazione degli utenti finali sono ancora più pronunciati. Qualora si tratti di un investimento esso viene fatto nella costruzione e manutenzione di strutture fisiche che la cui finalità è quella di garantire la mera sopravvivenza biologica della persona svantaggiata mentre la fornitura di servizi - e dei servizi di assistenza personale in particolare che rappresentano il fulcro degli interventi - avviene secondo modalità standardizzate (stesso servizi a tutti: ma le forme di svantaggio e le persone hanno caratteristiche molto diverse), scarsamente flessibili (orari, tipologie di servizio, ecc.) e con personale poco o per nulla addestrato. Anche laddove esistono servizi pubblici per le persone con svantaggio sociale e disabilità molto sviluppati - come nel nord Europa - l`organizzazione e l`erogazione degli stessi avviene secondo le esigenze funzionali degli enti preposti e non secondo quelle degli utenti.
Entrambe queste tipologie di intervento risultano inidonee a garantire i diritti di uguaglianza e libertà ed, in particolare, il diritto al lavoro in quanto frustra l`aspirazione delle persone a condurre una vita indipendente dalle proprie famiglie e dalle istituzioni e la stessa ricerca di un lavoro adeguato alle proprie capacità e necessità. Tale risultato dipende dall`aver escluso gli utenti finali dalla progettazione e gestione degli interventi assistenziali negando la possibilità di progettare i servizi, ancora meno di organizzare gli stessi in funzione di una propria vita indipendente e dell`inserimento al lavoro. Il lavoro, infatti, consente la valorizzazione delle capacità dei soggetti, il raggiungimento dell`autonomia economica e l`inserimento sociale: vita indipendente e inserimento al lavoro sono, pertanto, intrecciati in modo virtuoso tra di essi.
Il problema di discriminazione che pesa sui soggetti più difficilmente occupabili va affrontato, pertanto, promuovendo un approccio che premia il protagonismo individuale di questi soggetti attraverso percorsi che portano ad una scelta di lavoro autonomo e di attività imprenditoriale costruiti sulle capacità dei singoli soggetti, da un lato, e, dall`altro, attraverso lo sviluppo dell`associazionismo ovvero di quella componente del terzo settore che non ha ancora esplicitato tutte le sue potenzialità.

Objective

Text available in

Poiche` il problema che si intende affrontare risiede nel carattere burocratico/assistenziale che permea l`approccio nei confronti dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e negli interventi concretamente realizzati da parte dell`operatore pubblico, l`obiettivo generale facente capo al progetto proposto dalla PS è quello di sperimentare un approccio imprenditoriale che rende protagonisti le persone e le loro organizzazioni di riferimento.
L`obiettivo generale individuato appare complesso per cui va perseguito tramite il raggiungimento di un sistema integrato di sub/obiettivi tra loro fortemente intrecciati, tra i quali vanno segnalati i seguenti:
1. sviluppare fortemente la visibilità e la capacità di comunicazione del mondo dell`associazionismo frammentato in migliaia di unità di piccolissime dimensioni ma di cui sfugge l`originalità, la missione perseguita, le progettualità future. Tale sub/obiettivo consente di recuperare all`associazionismo quel ruolo di interlocutore delle politiche settoriali finora negato informando della sua azione e garantendo i soggetti interessati circa l`efficienza e l`efficacia della stessa;
2. valorizzare la capacità di essere rete dei partner promuovendo tutte le sinergie possibili tra le diverse associazioni onde favorire lo scambio culturale e l`individuazione di piani di lavoro comuni per l`inserimento lavorativo dei propri associati costruendo, laddove ciò è possibile, solidarietà e rapporti professionali;
3. promuovere e consolidare la cultura della Vita Indipendente e della valorizzazione delle capacità (residue, nel caso dei disabili gravi) tra i soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e presso la società civile e le istituzioni locali. Questo sub/obiettivo consente di mettere in luce ai soggetti direttamente interessati, agli attori dello sviluppo e alla società locale i vantaggi derivanti dall`abbandono di un modello di approccio burocratico/assistenziale;
4. rafforzare la capacità dell`associazionismo di fare rete con gli attori dello sviluppo locale progettando e gestendo una serie di azioni finalizzate alla valorizzazione delle risorse locali e alla sperimentazione un rapporto progettuale con i soggetti pubblici. Questo sub/obiettivo consente di attivare un clima di fiducia nei confronti delle associazioni e di individuare campi di collaborazione comune tra l`associazionismo e gli enti pubblici locali;
5. aumentare la qualità dell`impresa sociale favorendo l`introduzione di metodi di gestione innovativi che consentono di migliorare la partecipazione interna alle decisioni e all`esperienza di tipo gestionale. Questo sub/obiettivo consente di rendere più diretto e trasparente il rapporto tra i diversi soggetti che operano all`interno delle associazioni e delle imprese sociali;
6. promuovere l`auto/imprenditorialità dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili attraverso la progettazione, la realizzazione e l`avvio di percorsi di lavoro autonomo che contribuiscono al raggiungimento della Vita Indipendente. Il sostegno alla creazione diretta di impresa si configura come un approccio antitetico rispetto a quello burocratico/assistenziale seguito dall`operatore pubblico nazionale e locale e più efficace rispetto a quello che prevede la delega a soggetti terzi. Il sub/obiettivo vuole dimostrare, pertanto, la possibilità di sviluppare percorsi di lavoro autonomo e imprenditoriale da parte dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e di prefigurare l`attivazione di un intervento ad hoc all`interno delle politiche del lavoro e della creazione di impresa;
7. il superamento di una logica burocratico/assistenziale nella erogazione dei servizi socio/assistenziali attraverso la creazione della figura professionale dell`Assistente per la Vita Indipendente che consente altresi` di finalizzare tali servizi all`inserimento lavorativo dei soggetti piu` svantaggiati. Il sub/obiettivo consente di raggiungere in modo innovativo la duplice finalità di ridefinire le diverse tipologie di servizi socio/assistenziali, di calibrarli rispetto alle reali esigenze degli utenti finali e, contemporaneamente, di consentire alle forme piu` estreme di svantaggio fisico di accedere ai percorsi di auto/imprenditorialita` e di lavoro autonomo ;
8. sopperire alla mancanza di strumenti specifici di promozione dell`auto/imprenditorialità dei soggetti più difficilmente collocabili e del mondo dell`associazionismo sperimentando l`avvio ed il funzionamento della finanza etica (un Fondo etico) capace di integrare risorse pubbliche e private e di orientarle verso la promozione delle iniziative ritenute più significative dai soggetti che alimentano il fondo. Il sub/obiettivo costituisce una assoluta novità per il territorio interessato dal progetto e per la regione Friuli - Venezia Giulia, consente di sostenere la creazione di impresa da parte dei soggetti di interesse della PS e di addivenire alla stesura di un piano di fattibilità dello stesso in funzione di un suo futuro ampliamento a tutto il territorio regionale;
9. favorire l`accesso al sistema della formazione da parte dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili al fine di sviluppare la cultura dell`inserimento lavorativo e la formazione imprenditoriale. Si tratta di tenere conto fin dalla fase della progettazione formativa delle caratteristiche dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili costruendo ausili (relazionali, psicologici, tecnologici) capaci si superare le forti criticità che si frappongono alla partecipazione delle attività previste. Il sub/obiettivo si propone di dotare tali soggetti della cultura del lavoro e di impresa, delle conoscenze imprenditoriali, manageriali ed operative che permettono di fare una opzione ragionata in favore dell`avvio di attività di lavoro autonomo ed imprenditoriale.

La strategia generale facente capo al progetto proposto dalla PS `Imprenditorialità Estrema per una Vita Indipendente` è quella di combattere l`approccio assistenziale e l`emarginazione dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili proponendo un approccio imprenditoriale che rende protagonisti le persone e le organizzazioni direttamente interessate dagli interventi. Questa strategia generale intende rimuovere gli ostacoli che si frappongono alla scelta imprenditoriale creando le condizioni per la sua effettiva realizzabilita`, vale a dire:
1. alimentando meccanismi di comunicazione e di valutazione (il bilancio sociale) che consentono di instaurare un rapporto fiduciario e progettuale tra i soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e l`associazionismo nei confronti degli attori istituzionali, delle imprese e, più in generale, della società locale. In particolare si tratta di progettare un modello di bilancio sociale e di sperimentarlo su venti imprese sociali;
2. sperimentare una azione formativa in grado di valorizzare le capacità residue dei soggetti con disabilità estreme (creazione di impresa sociale innovativa) che preveda la piena fruizione della stessa da parte dei beneficiari finali garantita dalla loro assoluta centralità in tutte le fasi che vanno dalla progettazione alla gestione dell`azione. In particolare si tratta di realizzare un corso di creazione di impresa per 20 disabili gravi che si conclude con lo start/up delle iniziative;
3. sperimentare una azione di promozione di percorsi di auto/imprenditorialità e di consolidamento di piccole associazioni esistenti e dell`avvio di nuove iniziative (creazione di imprese sociali innovative) che dia conto alla società locale del protagonismo dei beneficiari finali e della capacità di creare imprese sociali. In particolare si tratta di realizzare un corso di creazione di imprese sociali innovative da parte di 20 soggetti (svantaggiati e associazioni di riferimento) che si conclude con lo start/up delle iniziative;
4. avviare una sperimentazione che consenta di finanziare lo sviluppo di imprese sociali gestite direttamente da parte degli utenti e dei familiari di utenti attraverso la creazione di uno strumento finanziario dedicato a queste due categorie di soggetti. In particolare si tratta si progettare ed avviare un Fondo etico e di sperimentarne l`operativita` attraverso il finanziamento di una decina di imprese sociali per una ammontare complessivo di 500 milioni di lire;
5. creazione di un ambiente favorevole alla cultura della Vita Indipendente basato sul protagonismo del disabile, la valorizzazione delle capacità residue dei disabili gravi, la possibilità di governare il proprio ciclo assistenziale, un approccio di imprenditorialità estrema. Essa integra e rende concretamente perseguibile quanto previsto al precedente punto 3 con la creazione della figura professionale dell`Assistente alla Vita Indipendente. Si tratta di una attivita` formativa finalizzata a creare 20 Assistenti personali della Vita Indipendente che affiancano i disabili gravi.
Rispetto a quanto indicato nel Formulario di candidatura per l`ammissione alla fase 1 vengono, pertanto, riconfermati tutti gli elementi della strategia con la sola eccezione riguardante la gestione diretta di tutti i servizi socio/assistenziali rivolti ai disabili fisici gravi. Si e` ritenuto prioritario, infatti, dapprima ridefinire varieta`, qualita` e modalita` di erogazione dei servizi attraverso la creazione della figura dell`Assistente personale per la Vita Indipendente (figura che viene definita e sperimentata nell`arco del progetto e finalizzata alla Vita Indipendente dei disabili fisici gravi in particolare nel loro percorso all`impresa) rinviando eventualmente ad una tornata successiva del programma Equal la sua integrazione all`attuale `pacchetto` di servizi socio/assistenziali resi disponibili dagli operatori pubblici presenti sul territorio.

Innovation

Text available in

L`intervento presenta caratteri innovativi sia per quanto concerne i processi attivati e gli obiettivi perseguiti sia con riferimento al contesto in cui intende agire e produrre risultati. L`innovazione di processo inizia con la scelta di realizzare interventi integrati per affrontare le diverse dimensioni del problema di discriminazione affrontato. Il progetto, pertanto, realizza innovazioni di processo con riferimento alla creazione di imprenditorialità estrema, alla innovativa figura professionale dell`assistente personale che rappresenta il punto centrale del modello della Vita Indipendente e per il quale è necessario prevedere un contratto collettivo di lavoro ad hoc.
L`innovazione orientata agli obiettivi è altrettanto profonda in quanto l`obiettivo di combattere l`approccio assistenziale e l`emarginazione dei soggetti più difficilmente occupabili e delle loro organizzazioni, proponendo un approccio imprenditoriale, stravolge il carattere burocratico/assistenzialistico dell`intervento pubblico in tema di inserimento al lavoro e delle politiche pubbliche rivolte ad essi. Le innovazioni che tale approccio innovativo trascina con sé sono rilevanti in quanto: individua nell`associazionismo e negli utenti finali due nuovi interlocutori delle politiche pubbliche; crea nuova occupazione attraverso il modello della vita indipendente e la scelta a favore della imprenditorialità estrema; innova i rapporti e fa cadere gli steccati esistenti tra i mondi estranei dell`assistenza, della formazione, della produzione, delle politiche del lavoro, della finanza; innova i metodi di gestione delle imprese sociali favorendone la trasparenza e la capacità di comunicazione; coinvolge i beneficiari finali nel miglioramento delle politiche pubbliche ad essi rivolte attraverso la definizione della figura professionale dell`Assistente personale per la Vita Indipendente; innova la strumentazione finanziaria in essere sul territorio regionale istituendo un fondo etico dedicato all`associazionismo; innova il sistema della formazione favorendone l`accesso dei soggetti più svantaggiati mediante l`allestimento di specifiche attività di sostegno.
L`innovazione di contesto è estremamente rilevante in quanto sia l`innovazione di processo sia quella relativa agli obiettivi si riflettono sul sistema della formazione, su quello socio/assistenziale, sul sistema finanziario, sul sistema dell`associazionismo e sul sistema degli enti locali interessati all`inserimento lavorativo dei soggetti più svantaggiati (le Province innanzitutto), innovano la contrattualistica del lavoro avviando contratti, strumenti, politiche e forme di collaborazione concrete. Sono innovazioni che non hanno precedenti né a livello locale né a livello nazionale anticipando le possibilità contenute nelle leggi nazionali n. 383/2000 e n. 328/2000.

iii. dimostrare la capacità di organizzare i soggetti interessati, anche attraverso strumenti e meccanismi che assicurano la collaborazione dei partner per tutta la durata della partnership. In questa ottica, va dimostrato che le piccole organizzazioni hanno la possibilità di partecipare a pieno titolo;

iv. dimostrare la sua capacità e volontà di operare in un contesto di cooperazione transnazionale, di networking e diffusione dei risultati.

Conseguentemente, ai fini dell`ammissione all`Azione 2, occorre ben evidenziare nella risposta gli aspetti di cui ai punti i)-iv).


Le modalità organizzative adottate nella gestione della PS sono state scelte con il fine di formulare un modello organizzativo razionale adeguato alla gestione di un progetto di carattere sperimentale, complesso sia per il numero e la diversità dei partner coinvolti, nazionali ed internazionali e sia per il livello elevato degli obiettivi e dei risultati attesi che ci si propone di raggiungere. Una sperimentazione dunque da supportare con un modello organizzativo equilibrato per quanto attiene la distribuzione del lavoro e delle responsabilità senza eccessi di protagonismo o marginalità. Si tratta di un modello organizzativo che punta sull`organizzazione e la divisione dei compiti ma anche sulla motivazione del gruppo e sulla volontà di fare qualcosa di innovativo che realizza un cambiamento utile ai disabili ma, più in generale, al terzo settore e alla comunità regionale.

le responsabilità di indirizzo e di gestione;

Relativamente alle responsabilità di indirizzo e di gestione della Partnership sono stati previsti nell`accordo di partenariato allegato tre modalità di funzionamento che, nel loro insieme, rappresentano gli organismi di funzionamento di tutte le organizzazioni coinvolte. Si tratta di riunioni a cui partecipano tutti gli aderenti alla PS - che possiamo definire come `l`Assemblea dell`ATI` - una parte dei soci della PS, ovvero quelli più attivi ed impegnati che possiamo definire come `Consiglio di Amministrazione del progetto`, infine, troviamo le riunioni del gruppo dirigente dell`ATI chiamati alla gestione quotidiana del progetto che possiamo definire come Ufficio di Coordinamento. L`Ufficio di Coordinamento e il Consiglio di progetto sono chiamati a svolgere la funzione di gestione della PS mentre le funzioni di indirizzo verranno assicurate dalle riunioni di Assemblea del progetto. Nella fase di progettazione della azione uno abbiamo previsto anche una attività di valutazione ex ante, in itinere ed ex post. Degli incontri e riunioni periodiche si terranno appositi verbali contenenti le deliberazioni che verranno assunte. All`assemblea di progetto partecipano tutti i soggetti che aderiscono e sottoscrivono l`accordo di partenariato; nel corso della prima riunione provvedono alla nomina del Consiglio di progetto, del Project Leader e del Project Manager. L`Ufficio di coordinamento si occupa della gestione operativa del progetto sulla base delle indicazioni e delle deliberazioni attuate dalle riunioni evidenziati in precedenza. L`Ufficio comprende al suo interno la figura del Project Leader e del Project Manager nonché le figure amministrative e tecniche indispensabili alla gestione qualificata dell`iniziativa progettuale e dello stesso partenariato.


la suddivisione delle responsabilità per l`esecuzione materiale del programma;

Con riferimento alla responsabilità per l`esecuzione del programma di lavoro, il Consiglio di progetto affiderà con proprie deliberazioni gli incarichi di lavoro ai soggetti capofila e agli altri partner dell`azione progettuale. Ai partner capofila verrà affidata un`attività di coordinamento di tutti gli interventi e di verifica dei prodotti che afferiscono alla propria area di attività mentre ai singoli partner verrà affidata la realizzazione degli interventi specifici ovvero dei prodotti e dei servizi così come definiti dalla proposta progettuale. Tutti i partner sono stati coinvolti nel corso dell`azione uno nella definizione dei contenuti di dettaglio delle diverse attività indispensabili per l`affidamento degli incarichi che verrà realizzata all`avvio della fase due. Tutti i soggetti attuatori impegnati nella realizzazione del progetto ed in quanto tali titolari di centri di spesa realizzeranno, per la parte di loro competenza, la relativa gestione finanziaria, rendicontando periodicamente i costi sostenuti all`Ufficio di coordinamento che provvederà, a sua volta, al riepilogo e alla trasmissione agli organismi di controllo e di erogazione del finanziamento.
Il soggetto capofila, tramite le riunioni dell`Ufficio coordinamento e del Consiglio di progetto provvederà, per tempo, a formulare un piano dei conti standardizzato sulla base del quale i partner titolari dei centri di spesa sono chiamati a gestire la dimensione finanziaria del progetto. I centri risulteranno strettamente correlati alle contabilità generali di ciascun ente come previsto dal disciplinare per lo svolgimento dell`azione uno.

L`attività di auto/valutazione viene assicurata dall`IRES-FVG e dalle due Università di Udine e di Trieste. Essa risulta necessaria per l`attività di impostazione e coordinamento del piano di valutazione e dei singoli prodotti, la formulazione dei fabbisogni di informazione e conoscenza dei beneficiari finali e per orientare le campagne di informazione, i workshop tematici valutandone periodicamente i risultati. I prodotti dell`attività di valutazione sono relativi alla valutazione ex ante, alla valutazione in itinere (tre prodotti), ed alla valutazione ex post per un totale di cinque prodotti.

Relativamente alla gestione dell`attività transnazionale con riferimento al modello organizzativo si è provveduto ad individuare: il coordinatore transnazionale del progetto nella PS Italiana con riferimento all`accordo che coinvolge i partner del Nord/Europa, la partecipazione nel gruppo di coordinamento composto per quanto concerne l`accordo che coinvolge i partner di Grecia e Portogallo, gruppi di lavoro per le principali aree tematiche, la struttura e le modalità di valutazione e monitoraggio e di mainstreaming. Relativamente alla pianificazione finanziaria ci si baserà sul principio della partecipazione ai costi e sui meccanismi di reciprocità proponendosi di contribuire alla gestione delle parti comuni del progetto attraverso apporti di lavoro e di risorse all`incirca della stessa identità e misura tra i diversi partner partecipanti.



L`organizzazione delle modalità di gestione dei rapporti con le Amministrazioni referenti;

I rapporti con gli organi Regionali e Ministeriali verranno tenute dall`IRES Istituto di Ricerche Economiche e Sociali attraverso l`Ufficio di coordinamento che provvede: alla sottoscrizione degli incarichi e delle altre obbligazioni necessarie alla realizzazione del progetto; alla richiesta delle anticipazioni; all`emissione dei relativi documenti giustificativi; alla messa a punto e trasmissione della documentazione necessaria ed idonea ad attestare gli stati di avanzamento del progetto; alla realizzazione di tutti gli atti necessari a rendicontare il monitoraggio finanziario, quello fisico e procedurale secondo i tempi e le modalità stabilite dalle amministrazioni concedenti i finanziamenti. L`Ufficio di coordinamento stabilirà al momento dell`avvio della Fase 2 le procedure amministrative, la modulistica di dettaglio, l`organigramma delle responsabilità indispensabile ad una efficace gestione amministrativa interna all`ATI ed in relazione alla richieste degli organi regionali e ministeriali di coordinamento e controllo. Infine, a preparare ed organizzare il partenariato alle visite ispettive periodicamente predisposte dagli uffici Regionali.


Le modalità di gestione dei contributi finanziari;

Alla gestione finanziaria del progetto si provvederà attraverso la costituzione di un gruppo di lavoro che comprende gli amministratori della finanza aziendale delle organizzazioni chiamate a gestire un proprio centro di spesa organicamente inserito nella contabilità generale dei singoli enti. Il gruppo si occupa della pianificazione e gestione delle risorse finanziarie del progetto a garanzia di una unitarietà di gestione della contabilizzazione e della certificazione di tutti i centri di spesa. Esso è attivo in fase di progettazione e di pianificazione dell`intervento sia in fase di attuazione attraverso incontri periodici e la predisposizione del regolamento amministrativo. Il gruppo si propone di realizzare un confronto attivo con gli organi delle Amministrazioni referenti per concordare il ciclo della gestione finanziaria ed i meccanismi di rendicontazione e certificazione delle spese. La gestione dei contributi finanziari del progetto verrà realiz

Empowerment

 With beneficiaries

Text available in

Il processo di coinvolgimento dei beneficiari finali è parte integrante del progetto, concepito e messo a punto da un gruppo di organizzazioni fra le quali hanno una posizione di primo piano quelle gestite dai beneficiari stessi o dove essi svolgono un ruolo di rilievo. Il progetto parte infatti dall`ipotesi che fornire direttamente strumenti e risorse ai beneficiari organizzati sia la metodologia più efficace per migliorare la loro condizione: essi conoscono meglio di ogni altro le barriere di discriminazione cui sono soggetti e, all`interno di un gruppo strutturato, possono avviare percorsi di scambio, confronto e studio mirati ad individuare le soluzioni più idonee. La struttura del partenariato risponde all`esigenza di sperimentare la creazione di un `parco-risorse` (prima di tutto umane) da mettere a disposizione dei beneficiari finali e delle loro organizzazioni - che risultano spesso poco visibili, deboli - e, quindi, non sempre in grado di accedere a quelle risorse che saprebbero utilizzare meglio di ogni altro. Alcuni soggetti deboli, poi, sono del tutto privi di riferimenti organizzativi cui appoggiarsi o non si riconoscono in quelli esistenti: per queste persone un arricchimento del mondo associativo può rappresentare un`opportunità per uscire dall`isolamento e di conseguire nell`immediato un miglioramento della propria condizione soggettiva.
Il progetto, ovviamente, intende rivolgersi ad una platea più ampia di soggetti deboli: risulta, pertanto, necessario individuare non solo i potenziali imprenditori, ma anche le persone da coinvolgere nelle attività di ricerca e di formazione e, inoltre, interlocutori che partecipino alla messa a punto di strumenti quali il fondo etico o il bilancio sociale, la cui validazione non può prescindere dal punto di vista dei beneficiari finali e delle loro organizzazioni.
Il processo di coinvolgimento comincia attraverso un`azione di informazione e sensibilizzazione diffusa su tutto il territorio che vede protagonista la rete associativa collegata al partenariato. Il progetto prevede, infatti, un intero campo di interventi chiamato `azioni volte a promuovere le potenzialità dei soggetti deboli` che contiene attività di pubblicizzazione, di orientamento e di consulenza individualizzata attraverso una rete di `sportelli` che permetteranno ai beneficiari finali di accedere alle opportunità offerte dal progetto. La connessione di tali sportelli con i terminali territoriali dei servizi pubblici aderenti al partenariato e la realizzazione di iniziative promozionali ad hoc, moltiplicheranno le opportunità di conoscenza e faciliteranno il lavoro di orientamento. In questo modo sarà possibile raggiungere soggetti appartenenti a tutti i gruppi a rischio che potranno dare il proprio contributo alla realizzazione del progetto.

Empowerment

 Between national partners

La complessità e la caratteristica multi/causale del problema che il progetto intende affrontare implica il coinvolgimento di una pluralità di soggetti operanti in ambiti diversi. Il processo di coinvolgimento dei partner si e` caratterizzato attraverso: una serie di incontri tra i partner proponenti e i partner che hanno aderito al progetto allo scopo di definire il problema e la strategia di intervento generale e, in modo particolare, le attivita` e gli interventi della nostra iniziativa progettuale; una serie di incontri interni alla PS finalizzata ad una progettazione di maggiore dettaglio dei campi di azione e degli interventi previsti attraverso la definizione del ruolo di ciascun partner; una serie di incontri interni ed esterni alla PS finalizzati al recupero dei partner individuati nella fase di predisposizione del documento di candidatura e non ancora acquisiti, in particolare Enti pubblici territoriali; l`istituzione di una mailing list avente il compito di facilitare lo scambio di informazioni, di opinioni e di integrazione ai documenti discussi nelle riunioni della PS; l`individuazione dell`istituzione finanziaria in grado di garantire il funzionamento del Fondo etico.
Il 3 aprile 2002, inoltre, e` stato formalmente costituita una Associazione Temporanea di Impresa (ATI) cosi` come previsto nel Formulario di candidatura per l`ammissione all`Azione 1. Per il pieno coinvolgimento dei partner ed il buon funzionamento della PS sono stati previsti i seguenti organi: l`Assemblea dei soci a cui partecipano tutti i soggetti coinvolti. E` chiamato a svolgere la funzione di indirizzo generale, di coordinamento delle varie iniziative, di definizione di compiti e responsabilità, di monitoraggio e di verifica/valutazione finale; il Consiglio di Amministrazione, eletto dall`Assemblea, a cui viene affidato il compito di comitato di pilotaggio per la gestione del progetto; il Project Leader, che avrà l`importante compito di garantire visibilità all`iniziativa, promuovere e mantenere le relazioni con l`esterno. In sintonia con la filosofia del progetto volta a valorizzare il ruolo dei soggetti beneficiari, il ruolo del project leader verrà assegnato a un rappresentante scelto dai beneficiari stessi; il Project Manager, indicato dalla mandataria (IRES-FVG), che sarà responsabile della programmazione delle attività, dei tempi e delle risorse umane e materiali impiegate.
L`operativita`, la trasparenza decisionale e la partecipazione di tutti i partner sara` garantita da un sistema di Gruppi di lavoro tematici, nominati dall`Assemblea, cosi` articolato: gruppo di lavoro Ricerca e documentazione; gruppo di lavoro Formazione e assistenza tecnica allo start/up; gruppo di lavoro dei soggetti beneficiari; gruppo di lavoro degli Enti pubblici.
