Castilla-La Mancha Cities' Competitiveness

NEW ARTICLE PUBLISHED:

Castilla-La Mancha Cities' Competitiveness in Intellectual Capital as Compared to Other Spanish Cities


Domingo Nevado Peña, José Luis Alfaro Navarro, Víctor Raúl López Ruiz

Abstract


Intellectual capital plays a central role in smart cities. The aim of this paper is to apply the recently developed model based on intellectual capital to measure and manage cities' competitiveness.
This model is applied to cities in Castilla-La Mancha and another 19 Spanish cities, enabling a
comparative analysis between these cities. To this end, the study presents a synthetic indicator that allows us to rank Spanish cities based on available information and propose a comprehensive management strategy that addresses both tangible and intangible competitiveness. From the results, it can be concluded that the cities of Castilla-La Mancha feature excellent human capacities and a good quality of life but that there is room for improvement in terms of city infrastructure and planning.

ICRG New index applied to cities

Sustainability Capital Index applied to cities is a new publication of ICRG-UCLM in the prestigious Journal Sustainability, in Open Access. You can read it now.

Abstract

Urban sustainability is a key factor that must be considered at the local level, however, there are few studies that consider sustainability using the triple bottom line approach and apply it to a large number of cities. In this paper, we develop a sustainability city index based on the triple bottom line using an intellectual capital approach that attempts to solve the negative aspects identified in the main indices proposed in the existing literature, such as the use of: subjective weightings, an arithmetic average or index that is not comparable. Here, we have used information available in the Urban Audit database for 2009. The results for 158 cities in 24 European countries show that the cities with the best positions are in the northern European countries. German cities occupied the best positions in the three dimensions of sustainability, albeit with a slightly worse performance in the social dimension. Moreover, the proposal index is consistent, without redundancy among the variables considered in the three dimensions.
