Housing First Belgium is primarily an experiment in social innovation.
It means testing out the practices of Housing First on the ground and seeing how they work and what the effects are.
The necessary ingredients therefore are:

- a timetable (any period of experimentation has a start and a finish)
- financial support
institutions responsible for practices on the ground
institutions responsible for overseeing the evaluation process
- a structure to steer and coordinate
