Between Information and Communication Process, the Territorial Intelligence, as a Network Concept & a Framework to Shape Local Development
Bertacchini Yann

With the benefit of 20 years’ hindsight of error-test process associated with our research: territorial intelligence; we shall try, by this contribution, to suggest a theoretical frame of “territorial intelligence” as a faculty of collective intelligence on a territory or as a result of a common representation. In order to illustrate and explain the theoretical framework that we are suggesting in this paper, we will conceptualize from our experience in company and also in research, in France and abroad. This specific integration of theoretical and experimental components is a promising model to overcome the obsolete subdivision between “theory” and “practice”. Today, European and French laws dealing with national and regional development are increasing: intercommunity projects, the question of agreements between State and Regions, etc. What does have to do with technical and administrative laws? We don’t say that we have the fully answer to this question, however, we can give some requirements and characteristics of body’s socio-territorial progress. These political bodies are seems to be in line with politics and economics, under a council or a government’s member leadership. In fact, these units have organized themselves around both, the same experience and the same culture; based on an historical continuation. This work is intended to get a new network organization. In this paper we would like to contribute not only to a better knowledge of local actor’s links but also to give appropriate answers to these questions. That is why we named this paper “Territorial intelligence: a network concept & an info-communication framework process”
