Every industry has – consciously or unconsciously – its own knowledge system. Individuals and institutions with specialist expertise and practical experience are linked to each other, held together by common interests and areas of responsibility. This is also true for the regional development scene in Switzerland. At the project and program level, our knowledge system includes the New Regional Policy (NRP), European Territorial Cooperation (ETC, incl. Interreg, ESPON, URBACT) and, since 2016, coherent spatial development (agglomeration policy (AggloPol) and policy for rural and mountain areas (P-LRB)).
With regiosuisse, the Confederation pursues the goal of retaining knowledge regarding regional development and tapping and processing the implicit knowledge and completing it with the explicit knowledge.
Since 2008, regiosuisse has been supporting people active in regional development with knowledge and network management. Through our offers, we create and disseminate knowledge and help to develop networks among the actors. The regiosuisse offers are financed by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and since 2016 also by the Federal Office for Spatial Development (ARE).
seecon is a member of the management team and is responsible for the knowledge communities, training, conferences, and the research network. In specific, we carry out the following activities:
