This D1.3 Framework for data collection and analysis is rooted in Work Package (WP) 1, Task 1.5 Develop data collection framework for multiple case study, including the SPOTTERON ICT platform. It is an integrated framework for data collection and analysis in WP 2 (social inclusion study) and WP 3 (social innovation and gender studies). In particular it addresses the work of Task 2.4 - Develop and refine the design and methodology for each case study; T3.1 Cross-case analysis of social inclusion opportunities; T3.2 Cross-case gender analysis; T3.3 Cross-case analysis of innovation processes, social change and the role of citizen social science (CSS); and T3.4 Cross�case analysis for positive drivers. The primary focus is on the social inclusion sub study, but the framework also touches on the social innovation and gender studies. It provides details of the 10 local cases being developed in nine countries in a multiple case study of co-creative youth citizen social science (Y-CSS) in Europe. This Report comprises four parts: (1) anintroductory overview of YouCount’s six overlapping WPs and four sub studies; (2) the planned participatory and co-creative research design and approachfor the multiple case study and use of ICT tools for inclusive science practices; (3) details the data collection methods that are both common to, and unique to the local cases; and (4) sets out the
data analysis strategy and preliminary plans for cross case analyses. The main target group for this Deliverable is the YouCount consortium partners themselves as this
document collates the plans and descriptions of the common methodological approach in the local cases as well as highlighting variations across the cases. It serves as a reference document for all YouCount team members including individuals joining the project at a later stage. As flexibility is at the heart of the YouCount approach, this is a ‘living’ document, offering an initial starting point that will be further amended to reflect empirical findings and practical experience at the end of the study
