  • 8. The URBACOST Hypothesis
    • Territories (like companies) can be considered as “knowledge repositories”, embedding especially concrete and uncodified knowledge
    • Development strategies should thus focus on local economic actors’ ability to tap value from their territory’s knowledge assets
    • Participation and concertation in integrated strategy-defining processes are an effective way to extract a territory’s knowledge-based development potential

  • 14. TLL Sicily
    • TLL Sicily is the first instance of a concept we have called “Territorial Living Lab”, that integrally applies the LL approach to a territory and its citizens, its model of governance and its strategic plans for the future: in essence, it can be conceived of as a new model for regional development.
