Targeted Analyses and Targeted Evidence Support

Under the Specific Objective 2 of the ESPON 2020 Cooperation Programme, “Upgraded knowledge transfer and use of analytical user support”, Targeted Analyses (TA) are powerful means to transfer knowledge, share experience and facilitate the use of European territorial evidence rooted in real place-based policy development processes. ESPON TA provide a European perspective for stakeholders and are related to their policy contexts. 

An additional activity, under the Specific Objective 2, is the Targeted Evidence Support that the ESPON EGTC shall offer to European funding programmes. This activity takes up the positive response during ESPON 2013 on the evidence and facts delivered to many programme authorities.
