Territorial Scenarios and Visions for Europe (ET2050)
Start date: May 31, 2011, End date: Feb 28, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Policymakers in the field of territorial development and cohesion are in need of a future oriented and integrated vision on the development of the European territory. Therefore the ESPON Programme started a territorial vision-building process following a participatory process and involving relevant stakeholders at European, national and regional level. This vision has a strategic character that allows giving direction to the policy debate on territorial development. The project is expected to support and deliver input to the territorial vision-building process by updating, extending and refining the scenario work of ESPON. To guide and deliver input to this vision-building process, three relevant axes are important: 1.Sharing a number of stories for understanding territorial cohesion and the main policy objectives for the European territories, its regions and cities; 2.Supporting European regions and cities in contributing to the targets of the Europe 2020 Strategy leading to a polycentric, diverse and sustainable Europe; 3.Enlarging and further detailing the four key challenges identified as particularly relevant for European regions in the Regions 2020 Study and to integrate prospects for the regions and cities in a long-term European territorial framework.
