by Ines Vilhena Da Cunha, Catarina Selada
International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development (IJIRD), Vol. 1, No. 4, 2009

Abstract: Despite the trends towards globalisation, regions and cities are emerging as the main arenas for territorial competitiveness. Cities have begun to act as communities of knowledge, innovation, creativity and learning, becoming more dynamic, complex, diverse, open and intangible. In this context, new urban strategies and policies have to be considered. In this paper, we will try to clarify the concept of 'innovation hub' as an outcome of creative urban regeneration processes. Based on a case study research methodology, we intend to distil best practices for the design and planning of these intelligent spaces.
