my recollection from years ago is that you are FC big in open space and lisbon communities of practice - 2 things dear to my heart; you may also know a lot about EU contacts which I believe is claude's area vis a vis the bangladeshi social business franchises that this ning tries to help any community open source
my own experience of the EU is mixed- around 1994 as a social survey researcher I spent several months in Lisbon and I was hired to research how every major pedip EU fund in portugal had been spent, and I also had another job working on a major portuguese (cement) companny's innovation goals;
I had to report to Brussels that most grants had not worked well because brand and market skills had not been mixed with the money in a way that sustaiined portuguese differential advantages- this has over the last 12 years become one of several times that I have had to be the messenger of bad news to the EU and other elite macro institutes of globalisation; my last conversation in Brussels was with the head of intangibles research - his budget had just been killed; he shared with me that until or unless 3 European Enrons happened in the same year he saw no way that politiv=cinas would be intreets in auditing organisation goodwill transparently - whether the current global destruction of baks through compound maths errors related to goodwill counts is an urgent topic to discuss
finding a way to open space between the micro action projects - of which hundreds have been tested in bangladesh over last 34 eyars and are ready to connect community to community world trade now and the world's biggest powers for or over people remains a puzzle I dont really know how to crack - for example I now live 10 miles away from the world bank but my few meetings there make DC and dhaka feel as if they are on different planets- this is sad because both to exist to lead millennial goals, end poverty, generate green jobs (video 3) and sustain communities and job creation
