European Territorial Review

Territorial Cooperation for the future of Europe

ESPON contribution to the debate on Cohesion Policy post-2020

The Territorial Review presents a synthesis of findings building on applied research undertaken up to summer 2017 by transnational research teams from all over Europe, working together in ESPON projects.

It addresses a wide range of different themes relevant for territorial development as well as for jobs and growth in Europe. It provides insights into the diversity of Europe’s places as well as the links that connect them. Above all, it focuses on the need to intensify cooperation between different territorial entities in Europe to utilise existing development potential and master challenges ahead.
