DeTeC - Detecting Territorial Potentials and Challenges
Regions in Europe are no longer isolated entities but are linked to a larger territorial context that opens up possibilities for utilising new and underused territorial potential for the development of regions and cities. Understanding the position of one’s region or city in the larger territorial context and searching for potentials and comparative advantages is a necessity in the accelerating globalisation and competition.
Awareness and openness for including a European dimension in strategy building and policy making is therefore of major importance in developing new regional policy approaches. This project is expected to meet the demand for analytical methods and approaches and to support local and regional practitioners and policy makers looking for ways to detect territorial potential involving a European perspective and to turn challenges into potential.
Scientific support to policy development
- The project shall provide practical guidance on how to utilise ESPON knowledge to detect territorial potential and turning challenges into potential deriving from their larger territorial context. It shall include concrete cases of good practices in utilising territorial potential, based on benchmarking, comparison with similar regions/cities.
- The target group for the project is practitioners and policy makers, first and foremost at regional and municipal level, which will be provided with an overview and guidance in their day-to-day work. The general guidance on analytical approaches and methods will also be relevant for practitioners and policy makers involved in development considerations in cross-border, national and transnational settings.
