Innovation Circle

PIPE fostered community initiatives and youth entrepreneurship in small and medium size towns and peripheral regions and pioneered a cross-sectorial approach where local authorities, NGOs and schools worked together with young citizens. However, it exposed deficiencies in institutional capacity and the lack of a common platform of concepts and understanding about spatial development. The IC was developed to build on the lessons from PIPE, and in particular to invest in further training and change management in the way regional and local authorities operate.
