Information Management in Regional Development – A Proposal for Situational Picture Framework and Instrumentation

4FRONT was part of a consortium, led by MDI, to build a situational picture framework of regional development. The study exploited and combined the state-of-the-art knowledge management models and practices already used by regions and ministries. The situational picture gives insight from the key themes and dynamics of regional development, and also facilitates the analysis of the joint effects of several factors and activities of different administrative sectors. The aim of the situational picture is to increase understanding of key issues in regional development and to raise these key issues into policy making and decision-making processes.

4FRONT’s contribution focused on developing a framework for analysing entrepreneurial ecosystems as part of the regional development (Appendix 2 in the report).
