Spatial Policy

In order to be able to develop a region, city or village to its full potential, a clear course and policy are needed. This calls for insight into problems, strengths, challenges and solutions in all aspects of society. Fostering innovation, SME development and entrepreneurship and investment promotion are key priorities for regional development and the recently established regional development agencies.

Moreover, the rapid regional growth and urbanisation require proper spatial planning policies, infrastructure support and social policies in order to accomodate this growth in a balanced and sustainable manner. In order to grasp the opportunities and overcome the challenges related to regional and urban development, sound policy preparation is required. Ecorys offers a range of experience and services for policy makers and institutions in these fields.
