ESPON Database Portal

Theme: Database and data development

The ESPON Database Portal ensures the availability of harmonised and accurate data on the European territory and neighbouring countries, which enables policy-makers, practitioners, researchers and other stakeholders to address a wide range of territorial issues in today’s rapidly-evolving society, economy and environment. The ESPON Database Portal gathers, manages and disseminates international statistical (as well as geospatial) data, in order to make them available in a user- and machine-friendly manner, ready for direct use in analyses and policy work for the ESPON community and outside.
