Une démarche participative sur l'intelligence territoriale en vue du redéploiement d'une province

Abstract : The SPI+, an economic development agency in the province of Liège, will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2011. This is a unique opportunity to implement a territorial intelligence process. The subsidiary notions of intelligent territories and of an integrated approach to territories will also be an integral part of the process. There are three central interdependent concepts in the 2011-2013 strategic plan and the operation of the SPI+: the territory, the services and the infrastructures aimed at the businesses or the community. The territorial intelligence concept connects these three action areas and makes them coherent and lateral, internally, but also for the development agency's action territory. In searching for a sustainable and balanced territory, the first step is to find partners who represent or are representative of businesses, the general population, the public service and various associations (municipalities, provinces, regions, socio-economic developers, etc.) The method of operation consists of forming a support committee, addressing four themes in the nine months preceding the conference, and then developing these themes in a working group under a leader. Following thematic research including many actors, the support committee reaches more than one hundred partners, ratifying the territorial intelligence process. The methodological (observation of the territory) and field expertise, along with everyone's knowledge, must be able to benefit from the socio-ecological transition that takes place and commit to repositioning our territory. Global development (the emergence of China and India, the shifting balance of assets and wealth to Asia, the search for identity and unity in Europe) makes it necessary to respond at this level and to find a balance for the province of Liège.
