Two main dimensions were addressed: - Discover the logic of action of the local community for the integration work and its partnership approach with social cooperatives. - Discover the functioning and activities of social cooperatives of type B in Italy and the manner in which they combine reception of weak people and economic efficiency. The topics and on which participants found most resource are: - The economic model of economic organization of the business and development strategies. - The reception of the public and the organization of human resources - The diversity of audiences within cooperatives. - The regulatory framework - Two points unplanned and surprising: o The contrast management including mental disability in a very open in Italy compared to France (closed specific areas). o The strong presence of religious culture and faith-based organizations around the cooperatives as the justification for the action on the technical and financial support for projects. Sharing between participants and receptions agencies was favored by pooling times during and after the mobility, which allowed an exchange promoting mutual knowledge of the realities of French and Italian. Host organizations were a common grouping in charge of health management issues, social inclusion and the Consorzio Montviso Solidale and a group of cooperatives (union) on the region of Cuneo Conf-Cooperative. This project enabled a step back from the participants about their practice and their approach to the changes in their structure.

On the activity of two-dimensional structures emerge in nature has come to change the current organization: - A mix of public for mixing people far removed from employment (including intellectual disabilities) to the side of ordinary employees. But also a host to these long-term employees. - A strong and dynamic entrepreneurial model, often closely related to ordinary economic fabric and heavily supported by charitable patrons.
