A region's main goal is to provide its residents all the factors needed to develop a high standard of living. The level of life quality is affected by many factors such as the quality of the environment, the security, the quality of available services, thus mapping the performance of a region is complex and multifactorial process. These factors are summarized in the concept of knowledge-based urban development (KBUD), which aims to increase the region's competitive edge, the attraction of highly skilled human resources and investments, and support the people of the region in reaching high standard of living and welfare. The primary purpose of this study is to review the theoretical background of the knowledgebased economy, and the detailed description of the concept of KBUD in various aspects. The study1 also summarizes and evaluates the most important international benchmark examples related to the application of this concept. Moreover, the study attempts to map the dimensions of KBUD to achieve a model that illustrates the concept of this concept. This model could provide an opportunity to determine the main trend lines of concentration processes detectable in our country.
