We have developed the Place Attractiveness Framework to help guide places work to enhance place attractiveness:

The Attractive Place. What is your identity and vision, what do you do to attract your target groups and how do you manage your forces of attraction?

The Connected Place. Are your start-up environments and clusters, businesses and universities connected and make the most of internationalisation? Do you say that or actually do something to prove that?

The Sustainable Place. A sustainable place attracts business, investors and talent who want in on an exciting development driven by innovation and breaking new grounds, technologically, economically and governance wise.

Hall of fame.
