The ESPON week from 29 November to 2 December 2021 is organised in cooperation with the Slovenian Presidency of the EU Council in the framework of the ESPON 2020 Cooperation Programme. UPDATE: Due to new COVID restrictions all events are only taking place online. The week addresses European, regional and local policymakers, as well as researchers, practitioners and experts.
One of the highlights of the week will be an introduction to the new ESPON 2030 Cooperation Programme and the official launch of the consultation process to define thematic priorities for future research activities by ESPON. The discussion will revolve around the four following areas:
- Perspective for all people and places,
- Climate-neutral territories,
- Governance of new geographies,
- Resilient places to crises.
During the meeting, participants will learn more about the structure of the new programme and will actively contribute in shaping its main activities for the next few years.
The second key moment of the week is the ESPON Seminar, which aims at discussing “Quality of Life for territorial and citizen-centric policies” bringing together the latest research on the topic and policy challenges.
