LOTTI’s overall aim is to enhance capacity of public authorities to design and implement policies fostering an innovative, sustainable, resilient and citizen-led transition driven by industrial tradition and identity.

Objective of the project
Our specific objectives, achieved through interregional exchange and connecting to S3 priorities in each region, are to support public authorities to:

  • Engage citizens in a pro-active approach to industrial transition, using local identity as a source of opportunity and a means of addressing backlash often present in the face of socio-economic transformation.
  • Re-create local identities that can encourage effective and attractive technological and non-technological innovation of traditional industrial contexts.
  • Connect local identity with the possibility for new jobs, businesses and entrepreneurial opportunities, based on S3 sectors and a regeneration of industrial production and premises.
  • The LOTTI partnership
