Our Strategic Unit on Local Development took part at the World Conference of Local Economic Development Agencies – “Local Economic Development Agencies: 100 good practices from the territory for a better world” – that was held at the KIP Pavillon at Expo 2015 on 21st-23rd September 2015.

The event brought together 62 Local Economic Development Agencies (LEDAs) operating in 18 countries all over the world, and associated to the ILS LEDA Network, to share their strategies for sustainable territorial development with international organizations, and national governments.

In particular, on Wednesday 23rd September Mario Biggeri and Andrea Ferrannini had the chance to present our research activities on Local Development, as well as our relevant active collaborations with LEDAs in several countries.
Several new ideas of potential collaborations were discussed during the conference with Agencies and local authorities in Colombia, Dominican Republic, Senegal and Albania, among others.
