ESPON BRIDGES: Benefiting from unique Resources by applying Innovative Development strategies in territories with GEographical Specificities

ESPON BRIDGES marks the start of a new phase in the analysis of territories with geographical specificities (TGS): mountain regions, islands, sparsely populated areas and coastal areas. The focus is not on whether TGS are lagging or not, but rather how they may develop in an increasingly integrated Single Market, and more generally in a context of economic globalisation. This implies enhanced exposure to international competition, deregulation and fiscal competition between countries, leading to limited public budgets. ESPON BRIDGES focuses on how ‘spatially blind’ policies, different types of market failures and path dependencies lead to a sub-optimal use of human and natural resources in TGS.

ESPON TCA/ ACTAREA: Thinking and planning areas of territorial cooperation. (finalised in February 2018)
