AIMS


The general objectives of the Master’s Degree in Local Development and Land Use Innovation are:

  1. To provide a specialist training for experts and technical staff qualified in local development, in order to meet the current demand from public administrations and private non-profit institutions (foundations, non-governmental organisations, etc.).
  2. To conduct an analysis of local development processes, which are increasingly related to global economic, social, cultural and educational phenomena.
  3. The dissemination of the European Employment and Spatial Management Strategy and teaching how it can be applied locally.
  4. To study useful and effective strategies and instruments capable of diversifying the fabric of production, enhancing the value of endogenous resources and generating a dynamic of sustainable growth on a district and local level in any country or region in the world, with particular interest in the most disadvantaged areas.
  5. To introduce students to local development and land use innovation research, from either a sector-specific or an integrated perspective.

The aim is to use an applied approach to provide students with the tools needed to incentivise and promote sustainable endogenous development by use and value enhancement of existing territorial resources.
