Regional Economic Development

The field of the local and regional economic development is intended for institutional players who are in charge of the development at the local and regional levels, both in urban as well as rural or suburban areas. It is also intended for active business players as well as active individuals who are involved or want to be involved in the development of the environment they work and/or live in.

The quality of life is shifting from cities to the rural environment and jobs with a high added value have stopped being a domain of only developed urban environments a long time ago. The rural environment has great potential for new challenges and opportunities, not only in the field of organic farming and tourism. We would like to present examples to show that innovativeness, creative industry, digital economy and entrepreneurship are not present only in urban environments. Many success stories with global dimensions start in the rural environment. What are the ways the urban and rural environments connect and collaborate?

The purpose of this topic is to:

  • share good practices in the field of the local and regional economic development;
  • present the importance and role of the public and private sectors in successful local and regional economic development;
  • fill in the gaps in the competencies and knowledge for a successful promotion of the local and regional economic development;
  • exchange experience in the promotion of market centred ideas for the economic development of urban and rural environments;
  • present innovative development initiatives and opportunities in the urban and rural environments;
  • connect local and regional Slovenian and international initiatives, and together seek opportunities for the development of such initiatives.
