Abstract

The article develops a methodology for applying the competence-based approach to use on a sub-national level in order to determine points of growth of a regional economy. A proprietary meta-model is proposed that links ‘to-do tasks’ for regional public authorities with essential competences. It also contains some methodological conclusions with the modernization strategy of a regional economic policy on the example of modern Ukraine, which is designed due to comparing an existing approach and approach modernized. Departed from the modernization meta-model and strongly relying on discreteness (discontinuity) as the natural property of any modernization, the authors substantiate the mechanism for overcoming undesirable discrete shifts during the modernization. Then, the relevant methods and forms of international centers of competence for the responsible development of a limited number of necessary competencies are discussed. A national network of competence centers is proposed as an optimal and sustainable way to run those centers in the future. Generally all findings were originated according a methodology on desk research, data collection and fresh expert survey of Ukrainian stakeholders.

Keywords: smart growth, regional economic policy, public policy, competencies, competence-based approach, modernization, Ukraine, mechanism

Abstract

The solidarity economy is guided by the guidelines of sustainable development, presenting the principles of self-management (as a mechanism for valuing freedom), equality between members and the exaltation of solidarity. This article aimed to analyze the development of income generating activities based on solidarity economy strategies, explaining individual and territorial impacts in the State of Amapá, located in the extreme north of Brazil, in order to show the main state development policies adopted. We used a qualitative research, with the selection of four projects for case studies, in order to measure the main advances and challenges that are required in the segment, as well as the impacts of the development policies to the solidarity economy in the projects studied. This study identified the need for restructuring in the formats of management policies of government agencies, which should operate in a harmonious and articulated way, but rather act in isolation and without effective communication between them, impairing the quality and result of the services offered. With regard to the impacts of the solidarity economy for the enterprises, it was verified that the activities investigated achieved financial return, which could be substantially intensified, if there was a better structuring in the development policies.

Abstract

The subject of the research is improvement of methodological tools for modeling economic development based on the formation of innovative clusters of environmental management within the region economic space. The aim of the work is to develop an economic-mathematical model for the formation of innovative clusters, expanding the methodological potential of forecasting and planning territorial development. Special attention is paid to the peculiarities of innovative cluster development process, which determine the initial conditions of the problem of finding the optimal spatial location and long-term development of industrial production in the cluster. The problems of optimization of spatial distribution of new and development of existing industries in the process of implementation of the cluster initiative are considered, approaches to mathematical modeling of formation and development of innovative clusters are generalized. The features of the economic-mathematical model of the formation of innovative cluster of environmental management are identified. The problem of optimizing economic development for territory on the basis of innovation cluster are formulated.

Keywords: economic clustering, innovation clusters, environmental management, optimization of economic development, economic-mathematical model, territorial development, industrial policy, regional economy, old-industrial regions, resource-producing industries, inter-sectoral interaction.
