One of the tasks will address the stakeholders network in Nilüfer. An intensive fieldwork research will be carried out by identifying stakeholders by following the Penta-Helix model: Private sector, Public sector, Civil Society, Entrepreneurs and Citizens. In addition to the Critical Factors analysis, this task will provide a more realistic social picture in terms of the relationship between actors, the power relations between them, the synergies, the potential innovative solutions achieved collectively by actors, among others.
