What is it?


A thematic study is an in-depth analysis of a sector, business model/s and/or specific topic that collects and documents qualitative and/or quantitative information through academic research, data collection and/or experiences of primary and secondary sources.

Examples of possible types of thematic studies:

  • Monograph on a subject in which the MIF or its partners have no prior knowledge or experience
  • Study of a new business model to be tested and supported by one or several MIF project/s
  • Reports on lessons learned and/or best practices generated by MIF projects or external actors
  • Report on current trends in a specific topic or area
