North Sea Star (NSS)
Start date: Sep 30, 2012, End date: Feb 27, 2014 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The North Sea Region faces the same energy challenges as the rest of Europe and transnational cooperation is being used to share knowledge and develop regional responses with the ultimate aim of developing regional energy self-sufficiency. This project aims to assess North Sea Region project results with a view to developing the most effective regional energy responses possible in future operations. The analysis focuses on the role that territorial cooperation can play in such developments and at how new models for clusteres project implementation might influence this process and promote effective multi-level governance. The combination of practitioners experience and the localisation of potentials and callenges based on existing ESPON results will provide input for decisions on future actions and programme strategies in the NSR, and should also be transferable to many other programmes and themes. The project should also answer the key questions on how the clustering approach can help to stimulate regional co-operation in order to provide input to policy making on how to accelerate the take-up of renewable energy technologies and supporting relevant green economic activities in the region.
