Managing Regional Change in Times of Uncertainty - A practical guide for local and regional economic developers

Megatrends such as demographic change, changing values, an increasingly knowledge- and data-based economy as well as the conservation of resources and climate protection have been influencing the development of economic locations not just since yesterday. However, as overarching driving forces, they continue to gain momentum. Added to this are industrial convergences and emerging technologies, which are bringing
about far-reaching changes in a wide range of application areas.

How this can be achieved in practice, which methods and processes need to be successfully applied and to what extent these can be transferred to the individual requirements of other locations, is shown by examples of innovative economic development agencies from different municipalities and regions.
