  • Typology Compilation

    Theme

    Compilation of regional typologies for the territories having particular attention by policy makers: urban / metropolitan regions; rural regions; sparsely populated regions; regions in industrial transition; cross-border regions; mountainous regions; islands and coastal regions. 

    Main focus

    Taking into consideration the policy development in relation to EU Cohesion Policy, the Treaty of Lisbon and the description of the new European aim of territorial cohesion, this project is expected to present a compilation of regional typologies for territories receiving particular attention by policy makers. The typologies selected are also covering the types of territories mentioned in the Lisbon Treaty § 174. The typologies are: urban/metropolitan regions; rural regions; sparsely populated regions; regions in industrial transition; cross-border regions; mountainous regions; islands and coastal regions.
