The OECD Trento Centre’s work is structured around two dimensions:

  • Capacity Building - Providing capacity building for people, places and institutions on issues related to local development. The OECD Trento Centre analyses the impact of policies at the local level and develops training curricula by connecting with wider OECD work. Two priorities have been identified in this area: i) Integrated approach to local development and ii) Innovation in culture-led local development.
  • Spatial Productivity Lab - Developing a policy lab on issues related to spatial productivity. The analytic work of the SPL has a strong empirical focus on the mechanisms that support the catching up of regions and cities lagging behind the (national or global) productivity frontier. The Lab assesses to what extent national productivity can be raised through national, regional and local policy measures.
*Please indicate which area(s) of work you are applying for.
