RISULTATI DI APPRENDIMENTO ATTESI LEARNING OUTCOMES
Knowledge and Understanding.

Knowledge and Understanding: The purpose of the course is to make the students aware of the Regional Economics’ theories and models (localisation and accessibility, hierarchy and urban structure, regional and local development) and of the main topics regarding the economies of the cities, the urban quality and sustainability and the urban form.


Capacity to apply Knowledge and Understanding.

Applying knowledge and understanding: The student will be able to perform a territorial analysis, to download, to manage and to process data, to compute indicators related to a target area, to prepare a report and to present related results by means of tables and graphs.


Transversal Skills.

Judgement, focus and communication skills. Theoretical lectures will be complemented by seminars held by expert and teachers in order to stimulate students’ critical approach and to broaden their horizons of knowledge. Students will be asked to give short presentations during the course, aimed at improving their public speaking skills.

PROGRAMMA PROGRAM

After having framed the origins, the theoretical and methodological foundations of Regional Economics, in the first section localization theories, regional growth theories (supply-side and demand-side), territorial disparities, territorial competitiveness (endogenous and exogenous) will be analysed. Particular attention will be devoted to the local economic development theories (Industrial Districts, Learning Regions, Milieux Innovateurs, etc.), stressing the active role played by the territory in shaping development processes. In the second section cities will be investigated a systems theory perspective. Finally, the student will be provided with food for thought regarding connections between bioregionalism and ecological economics from one hand and sustainable development models from the other (blue and green economy, circular economy).
The third section, which is computer-based, aims at providing the student with the necessary skills in order to perform a territorial analysis. Starting from the identification of a territorial unit of analysis, and by using a set of suitable indicators, the student will be able to discuss and compare regional and territorial development trajectories by means of tables and graphs.
