The evaluation will be carried out as a structured telephone survey aimed at participating companies, semi-structured interviews with a limited selection of companies, and a document analysis of project decisions and the activities descriptions of the three initiatives.

The evaluation will be performed between April and August 2019, with the main delivery being a final report that will be presented for stakeholders in Västra Götaland.
