    Expected impact
    Most European cities are currently facing new challenges to develop territory attractiveness, in a context of continuous globalization and always fiercer competition: for them the key objectives are trying to attract investment, qualified workforce, tourists and consumers with high buying power into their towns, as well as improving quality of life for the citizens that live and work there while optimizing their internal productivity.

    To successfully approach this goal, cities have to make concerted efforts to increase their attractiveness and develop a clear and unique image: in this respect they have to differentiate by:
    • Enhancing their local identity
    • Deepening their regional positioning
    • Increasing their international awareness, also by strong networking actions
    Consequently local administrations have to communicate consistently and in an integrated fashion to influence people's positive perception of their city, be they in town or in another region or country.

    On the technical side local administrations have to optimize their infrastructures and offers along the ever changing needs of their stakeholders.
