Regional management as an instrument of regional development makes an important contribution to improving regional competitiveness by establishing regional, interdisciplinary networks in counties and independent cities.
Through these networks, the existing potential in subregions should be used optimally and their autonomous development strengthened sustainably. The aim is to compensate for the weaknesses of a region as far as possible and to secure and further improve the existing strengths.
Regional management, based on action plans and the use of project managers in the region, so-called regional managers, designs the development through project and network work.
Among the tasks of regional management include:
- Development and implementation of defined projects in the region
- Establishment, maintenance and consolidation of a network of contacts to existing local initiatives and between companies, universities, chambers, associations, service providers and lenders, etc.
- Promotion of an active opinion, knowledge and know-how transfer
- Coordination with as much as possible of all development strategies and initiatives currently being implemented in the region
- Leading regional projects to funding programs at EU, federal and state level
- Conducting and participating in events on key topics in the region.
