ESPON will launch a round of 7 applied research projects soon:

  1. Financial instruments and territorial cohesion
  2. Green infrastructures and ecosystem services
  3. European territorial reference framework towards 2050
  4. Youth unemployment: territorial trends and regional resilience
  5. Circular economy and territorial consequences

Moreover, stakeholders can develop proposals for Targeted Analyses and submit them to the ESPON EGRG by 23 June 2017.
