The ESPON seminar “The role of functional areas for territorial cohesion” aims to support policy development for promoting territorial cohesion and harmonious development of the European territory

Furthermore, the seminar will provide insights to the latest ESPON evidence on many of the topics related to the territorial cohesion debate regarding financial instruments, green infrastructure, circular economy, refugee flows, youth unemployment, geographical specificities, cultural heritage, territorial impact assessment, land-sea interactions, big data, and urban-rural linkages.
