Abstract

This paper aims at examining Lombardy's competitive potential in the objectives framework set by the Lisbon and Gothenburg strategies, and verifying regional policies coherence with respect to such objectives. By following a common research group methodology (SteMA model), the territorial framework is a reference point for the regional competitiveness and sustainability analysis. The examination and elaboration of subsequent series of indicators lead to reading the current situation. These indicators are grouped into four determinants: Innovation and Research, Global/Local Interaction, Quality, Resources and Funds. An assessment of the facts emerged from the analysis, allows to draw some general considerations on the possible effects of regional policies, on the objectives set by Lisbon and Gothenburg strategies and on the emerging critical issues.
