TERCO at ESPON Seminar in Paphos

ESPON Internal Seminar "Territorial Development Opportunities in Europe and its Neighbourhood - Fostering Global Competitiveness"

ESPON organised in cooperation with the Cyprus Presidency of the Council of the European Union the Internal Seminar “Territorial Development Opportunities in Europe and its Neighbourhood - Fostering Global Competitiveness”. The Seminar took place in Paphos (Cyprus) on 5-6 December 2012 and brought together 190 participants representing the ESPON Monitoring Committee, Contact Points and Project Groups as well as stakeholders participating in Targeted Analysis projects.

As recent ESPON evidence on globalisation shows, to strengthen competitiveness and to enhance Europe’s strategic linkages, it is of great relevance to better understand the territorial development of the EU neighbouring regions. ESPON’s contribution to the formulation of adequate policy strategies to enhance Europe’s competitiveness in the global context was in focus at the event.

The purpose of the Seminar was two-fold:

  • debate and better understand the territorial development of structures, trends and perspectives in the Neighbourhood countries and cities by using ESPON evidence and tools;
  • allow policy makers and practitioners to discuss themes for further mutual cooperation between Europe and its neighbourhood and approach new options for territorial development in the global context

Results of the TERCO Project were presented at the Seminar on the workshop "Territorial cooperation at different scales" by Katarzyna Zawalinska. The presentation from the workshop with, among others, messages from TERCO Project, is available here.
