CITISPYCE is a 3 year collaborative project, funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Research and Development programme for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). oordinated by Aston University, it has involved 12 other partners from 10 countries across the EU. These also include stakeholders from civil society, who are experienced in policy-making and delivery, as well as an interdisciplinary team of academic researchers from 7 leading universities.
The project was launched in January 2013 and is set against the back drop of widening social inequalities and renewed concerns about the disproportionate impact of the global economic crisis on young people. Partners have conducted research into the lived experiences of disadvantaged young people in deprived neighbourhoods in ten cities in ten countries of the EU as well as with policy-makers and practitioners from the local to European level. They have uncovered a range of initiatives undertaken by and for young people to help tackle their inequalities and have tested the potential transferability of some of them from one context or country to another. They have also been assessing in what ways such initiatives could be regarded as social innovations. The project came to an end on 31 December 2015 and the final reports and recommendations are available on this site.
