Policy learning
To what extent the measure can be considered as a success and worthy of policy learning?:
It is too early to judge the success of the measure (e.g results of first call for proposals still not known).
Evidence of outcomes based on evaluation and other evidence:

As in most German support measures at the regional level, this particular measure was not evaluated. Reliable information on its actual effects is therefore available to a very limited extent. Additionally, there is very little information available on the effects of similar measures in other regional contexts. Consequently, it is not possible to give other than an light assessment of the outcomes

What are the most important “Do’s and Don’ts” that regional stakeholders should be aware of when launching a similar measure?:

Based on the limited availability of information described above, no reliable recommendations can be given.

Would you recommend this measure as an example of regional good practice to policy-makers from other regions ?:
