The ESPON TIA (Territorial Impact Assessment) web Tool is an interactive web application that can be used to support policy makers and practitioners with identifying potential territorial impacts of new legislation and policies.

The tool combines the expert knowledge and judgements about the potential impact with a set of statistical data describing the characteristics of regions. Based on the different sensitivity of regions, the expert judgments are translated into maps showing the potential territorial impact of EU policy on NUTS 3 level. These maps can serve as a starting point for further discussion of different impacts of a concrete EU policy on different regions.

This training activity will be guided and moderated by Mr. Bernd Schuh (OIR), an expert on the ESPON TIA Tool. The participants of this training will be guided through the different steps of the impact analysis and will receive assistance and guidance for preparing a territorial impact analysis.
