Third ESPON 2013 Synthesis Report
Territories finding a New Momentum:
Evidence for Policy Development,
Growth and Investment
Results by July 2013
September 2014 - ESPON presents in this report a third synthesis of findings building on applied research undertaken up to the summer 2014 by transnational research teams from all over Europe, working together in 66 projects.
It presents new insights on Europe in the world and its neighbourhood, key territorial partners in Europe including macro-regions, the development of urban and rural areas, as well as areas with geographical specificities, and is garnished with examples from targeted analysis that have been initiated, delivered and used by stakeholders in Member and Partner States, regions and cities providing a European perspective on themes of their interest.
The report is in particular relating the discussion of Europe’s territorial diversity, potentials and challenges to the context of the economic crisis - although a lot of the research has been carried out before the territorial impacts of the crisis could be studied and analysed.
