Image description

This conference will discuss the emergence of new forms of industrial development and policies targeted on the competitiveness of regions and cities. The aim of the conference is to share knowledge and experiences in industrial and territorial development.

The conference will also seek to point to some of the more recent changes in concepts that have made their way from theoretical and conceptual thinking to policy implementation, and will discuss the implications of these changes for academic research as well as policy-making.
