Aims: This article aims providing structural, and deeper, answers to the words used in titled, how “The Territorial intelligence process can be considered as necessary Ecology of Communication for development of “hybrid territories” and because in first part, we have been working, researching, for more decades in territorial intelligence field and secondly, because we have seen from the TICs development that territorial organizations in 21st Century are becoming hybrid, a mix made of physical (geographical) territory and digital territory and call for appropriate path to think about their future. Study design, Methodology & Place and Duration of Study: We illustrate our arguments by drawing on five situations of specific PhD research conducted in the interval from 2000 to 2014 throughout E.U in general and in France, in particularly. Reflecting the past six years, (2008-2014), they were fueled from the exercise of two local mandates. Results & Conclusion: All aspects encountered during these years need extracting additional points for consideration in the future. In conclusion, we propose structural elements for a response, and perhaps, for a future program of hybrid territories to be developed with the help of territorial intelligence process because of exposed territory to an insular development potentially breaking their continuum.
