Torino Internazionale | The Second Strategic Plan

In July 2006, first Strategic Plan document was updated in order to respond to a socio-economic context that had changed even further, creating new necessities and different growth objectives.

According to the "2nd Strategic Plan for a knowledge Society", the keystone for completing this transformation is investment in human resources and innovation, and valorization of the patrimony of local competences in order to adapt them to the new global context, hinges upon the idea of a Knowledge Economy.

Work on the preparation of the 2nd Strategic Plan began in January 2005, and was coordinated by thematic commissions entrusted with the duty of exploring scenarios, objectives and possibilities. The commissions met in plenary sessions and in small groups, experimented forms for involving the citizens, promoted conventions and organized political and institutional encounters. They explained the planning process through publications and mass communications. As in 2000, the planning process involved over 1,000 people.

The 2nd Strategic Plan is separated into four thematic areas - the metropolitan territory, the quality of society, cultural potential, economic development - to which a fifth, more transversal, theme can be added, concerning the vision of the Plan. These areas are divided into twelve project directions involving important topics upon which the territory's development is based. Each direction is articulated in a variable number of objectives - for a total of fifty-four - which focus on various aspects of the projects proposed by the Strategic Plan in a certain area or sector. Even though each objective springs from a specific thematic area, it produces effects and has an influence on (or is in turn influenced by) other objectives of neighboring thematic areas, thus creating a web of virtuous relations that are an essential condition for achieving the original objective.

The thematic areas as a whole, from the axes to the objectives, indicate a spectrum of potential opportunities and projects for the territory. These opportunities and projects, for which the Association has initiated a selection process, present a few recurrent characteristics: their level of development; their relevance, which is shared by all the participants of the territory; their economic sustainability; their interdisciplinary nature; their ability to introduce innovative methods and instruments.
