the project proposal is done in collaboration among: associazione bruno trentin (ex ires – istituto ricerche economiche e sociali) – rome, italy; university of belgrade – faculty of architecture, department of urbanism, public art & public space program – serbia; and department of architecture, design and urban planning (dadu), university of sassari (uniss) – italy.

current debate on local development highlights the importance of its place-based dimension. the emerging approaches (stimson et al.2011), while recognizing that development is framed by exogenous factors, attribute a much more significant role to endogenous forces. this approach has been translated into european policies and regulations with the concept of community led local development (clld) whose legal basis is defined by articles 2 and 32-35, regulation(eu) 1303/2013. it concerns four funds covered by the ue common strategic framework in the 2014-2020 programming period. it is meant to be used at sub-regional level, complementing other development support at local level. clld can mobilise and involve local communities and organisations to contribute to achieving the europe 2020 strategy goals of smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, fostering territorial cohesion and reaching socio-economic policy objectives. main aim of this proposal is the identification and construction of a clld-model of intervention on the regional development trajectories.this model will consist of a feasibility study for the implementation of a proactive decision-support web-platform aimed at community-led local sustainable development providing a valuable interface between firms, communities, authorities with solution-oriented innovative approaches in a public and participatory dimension.

this policy-focused research proposal will stem from two different case-studies:
1) the region of negotin, focused on the studies, networking, the transfer of knowledge already developed within the bilateral scientific
cooperation of the partners and sponsored by the italian embassy in belgrade, (see negotin dossier,http://www.ais3.ac.rs/algheronegotindossier/);
2) the region of zlatibor,connecting the present proposal with the investment that maeci has already made in supporting the 2013 “mobility” project n. rs13mo5 and its scientific outputs and spin offs(see sections cv,collaborazioni).
