The 2nd International Conference on Smart Learning Ecosystems and 
Regional Development aims at promoting reflection and discussion 
concerning R&D work, policies, case studies, entrepreneur experiences 
with a special focus on understanding how relevant are the smart 
learning ecosystems (schools, campus, working places, informal learning 
contexts, etc.) for regional development and social innovation and how 
the effectiveness of the relation of citizens and smart ecosystems can 
be boosted. This forum has a special interest in understanding how 
technology mediated instruments can foster the citizen’s engagement with 
learning ecosystems and territories, namely by understanding innovative 
human-centric design and development models/techniques, 
education/training practices, informal social learning, innovative 
citizen-driven policies, technology mediated experiences and their 
impact. This set of concerns will contribute to foster the social 
innovation sectors and ICT and economic development and deployment 
strategies alongside new policies for smarter proactive citizens.
