  • 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
