Objective: To improve territorial identity and structure

Territorial identity is increasing, both because the economic imperative in the Information Society, spurred on by the delocalising potential of ICT, seeks out ever more specific locational characteristics, and also because regional awareness amongst citizens and policy makers, particularly when embedded in a specific cultural milieu, gives greater recognition to the need for an integrated and synergetic approach. Regions provide a sense of identity, of place and of belonging necessary for social and regional sustainability, as well as a focus for governance, policy and action. Also important is the extent to which territorial entities are decentralised from national structures and how they create regional alliances. Common territorial resources are significant in this context, including transport, health services, physical resources (such as land, buildings and utilities) and not least ICT infrastructures and services.

Keywords: Transport, eGovernment, eGovernance, Physical infrastructure, Regional ICT, Regional identity, Regional policy
