Rome's Telematics Strategy-Making Process: Sociotechnical Alignment and Clusters
- 77 Downloads
The paper discusses the constituency-building story of the emergence and development of Rome Municipality's Eurolaboratorio and telematics strategy-making process. The analysis uses Molina's diamond of sociotechnical alignment to assess the initial conditions and map the evolution of the main aspects of the story. It includes a description of the rationale and operation of Eurolaboratorio, its success in taking the Municipality into many European collaborative research and technology projects, the approach implemented for the telematics strategy-making in Rome, the advances of the process and the political-human aspects influencing its development. A final section provides some theoretical reflections on the relations between ‘micro’ constituency-building processes and ‘macro contextual’ features.
