A territorial monitoring tool for a European macro-region: the example of the Baltic Sea Region

EB8-coverApril 2014 - Territorial development has been an issue in the Baltic Sea Region for the past 20 years. Experience shows that territorial cooperation and policy approaches to transnational development potentials and challenges require a sound base of comparable transnational evidence.

This ESPON Brief illustrates how policy making at macro-regional or transnational level can benefit from territorial evidence provided by ESPON. The ESPON BSR TeMo (Territorial Monitoring for the Baltic Sea Region) project has developed a tailor made territorial monitoring system, based on indicators, to promote territorial cohesion and support the contribution of the Baltic Sea Region to smart, sustainable and inclusive growth as mentioned in the ‘Europe 2020 Strategy’.

ESPON Evidence Brief No. 8 “A territorial monitoring tool for a European macro-region: the example of the Baltic Sea Region” is available below.
