ESPON - Integrated Territorial Development in V4+2 countries: new challenges, new ideas, new responses

  • 07/03/2018 - 10:00
WHAT IS IT AND WHERE, WHEN? ERRIN and Inova Plus are working with ESPON to develop Transnational Outreach Activities (TNO). After three successful events last year in Rome, Vilnius and Oslo, our first event of 2018 will be taking place in Budapest on the 7th March 2018. AIM OF THE CONFERENCE The conference will examine the challenges for Integrated Territorial Development in the Visegrad 4+2 countries (Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria and Romania) and share ESPON applied research results in the context of territorial governance and spatial planning systems in these countries. With concepts such as mainstreamed cooperation, Communities of Intent, place-based strategies and integration of inner peripheries, ESPON will provide further insights into the new logic and new needs for integration. An expert panel on demand-responsive programming will be exploring synergies between ESIF, R&I and financial instruments, seeking answer to the question as to how to adequately address the new integration demand with support schemes and instruments. The conference is aimed at a range of regional policy makers and especially those responsible for integrated territorial development at national, regional and local level. This will be a good opportunity to find out what is happening in terms of Integrated Territorial Development in the Visegrad 4+2 and also to get more information on relevant EU strategies. USEFUL INFORMATION The conference language is English with simultaneous interpretation into Hungarian. The conference is free of charge.   For further information, please contact info@espon.eu and register at https://www.espon.eu/budapest. INTERESTED IN OTHER TNO EVENTS?
