Abstract - In modern societies, the pace of change is increasing and new needs are emerging in the supply and demand of public services. These dynamics have moved, from a bureaucratic and closed management model to a more open, diversified, participatory and simplified one. The recent economic and financial crisis has further shaped the supply and demand of public services, leading to a spatial reorganisation of the public services network and increasing the importance of innovation in the provision of public services. In a context where public policies face new and more complex challenges, we show that territory assumes a critical role.
