Project Goals: The project RICDSS aims to create a system to develop and support regional intellectual capital with particular emphasis on public administration. Building on prior research, the project consortium identified intellectual capital as a strategic resource with particular attributes that have the potential to enhance productivity of public administration processes, improve the interaction and the relations with citizens of a region and contribute to more democratic and economical decision making.

The RICDSS aims to establish a terminology as well as evaluation methods, management and reporting of intellectual capital in five regions of the European Union.

The project was candidate for the H2020 Program, having been rejected for funding.

Project Outputs: As outputs of this project a network was created among the project participants, which has allowed scientific collaboration in several areas.
