The following article examines some of the initial experiences of Member States with the Integrated Territorial Investment (ITI) tool. It draws from examples of ITI in Belgium (Limburg) and Finland (Six Cities) which are already in advanced stages of planning. The article highlights the versatility of ITI as an implementation tool for integrated territorial approaches but also considers key challenges in relation to administrative and institutional capacity, territorial competiveness, limited scale of resource allocations, and ambiguities in relation to implementation requirements.
