The OECD LEED Trento Centre
The OECD Programme for Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) and its Trento Centre advise governments and communities with the mission to contribute to the creation of more and better jobs through effective policy implementation, innovative practices, stronger capacities and integrated strategies at a local level. The OECD LEED Trento Centre builds the capacities of policymakers and practitioners in the following thematic areas: i) integrated local development; ii) culture & local development; iii) employment, skills & social inclusion; and iv) entrepreneurship & SMEs.
We are a small team, so interns have the opportunity to be actively involved in a wide-range of activities. Interns usually work on a specific project, however they also assist in wider Trento Centre activities, such as conference and seminar preparation.
The OECD LEED Venice Office
The objective of the OECD LEED Venice Office is to produce evidence and advice on ways to maximise the impact of culture and creative industries as levers for growth, job creation and social inclusion at the local level.
The work focuses on data gathering and analysis of national and sub-national policies, as well as governance and investments frameworks, to support culture and creative sectors. The Office is currently organising a major international conference on culture and local development to be held on 6-7 December 2018.
