    RESUMEN Los territorios insulares pequeños se caracterizan por la fragilidad que presentan ante cualquier actividad que se realice en ellos. Consecuentemente, sería recomendable basar el desarrollo de estos territorios en activos intangibles, que no se deterioran ni consumen con el uso, y cuya utilización provoca un bajo o nulo perjuicio al medio ambiente. Por ello, el propósito de este trabajo es el de aportar un modelo que permita a los territorios insulares identificar y medir los activos intangibles que contribuyen o pueden contribuir a lograr un desarrollo sostenible. Se muestra, además, la aplicación del citado modelo al caso de Gran Canaria. ABSTRACT Small islands territories are characterized by their fragility when faced with any activity that takes place within them Consequently, the development of such territories should be based on intangible resources that do not deteriorate or erode with use, and whose use does no, or very little, harm to the environment. Therefore, this work proposes a model to enable island territories to achieve a sustainable development based on their intellectual capital. It also demonstrates the application of the model to the case of Gran Canaria.
