GETIR project story started at the beginning of the 2000´s, due to the extensive experience of the project coordinator (Documenta9 in the fields of research and innovation and the implantation of the local development model based on the definition of Intelligent and Responsible Territories. The first time when that concept was presented was in Rodhos, 2003 under the Greek EU presidence, during the European Forum on Local Development and Employment, and it was highlighted by Mrs. Diamantopoulo in her conclusions.
In that forum, Javier Farto, president of Documenta, explained that the concept of IRTs comes up from the idea of local environment: a network of local actors and the relations that form the productive system in which economic, social, political and institutional agents have specific ways of organization and regulation, their own culture, and they generate a dynamic of collective knowledge.
Since that, after several contacts asking for his presentation and new concept, he decided to write a book that was published in Spanish in 2005.
