Domain: Regional Development

The focus of the regional development domain is on good practice in the support and promotion of wealth and welfare as part of an integrated geographical approach, expressed at a local/regional scale involving local/regional actors. Cases examined are either one or both of the following:

  • cases in which regional development activities and/or issues have been significantly changed or enhanced by an Information Society or Knowledge Economy context (i.e. where the case exploits a regional situation in which overall uptake and application of ICT is sufficient to change the types and scales of activities, or the roles, relationships and types of actors)

  • cases directly using ICT (in whatever form) as an important component in regional development, although not necessarily the most important component.
