2 1.What would be the benefits of a Territorial Vision for Europe in 2050? 2.Is the proposed open and polycentric Europe the right vision? 3.How should the Territorial Vision 2050 be promoted?

3 GDP a.a. : 1,89 % 45 regions bellow 1,00 % Growth and growing regional disparities

4 GDP per capita gap Absolute disparities will likely remain

5 Making Europe Open and Polycentric First Policy-aim: Openness Connecting Europe globally Promoting co-development with Neighbouring regions Second Policy-aim: Polycentricity Unleashing regional diversity and endogenous development Supporting a balanced urban structure Sustainable management of natural and cultural assets

6 Opening up European markets to global competition and promoting global sustainability Connecting Europe globally Enhancing the efficiency of transport & telecommunication networks and decentralising EU intercontinental gateways Developing an integrated Trans- European Electric Grid and promoting energy efficiency and renewal energy sources

7 Supporting cross- border integrated development Promoting co-development with Neighbouring regions Linking Trans- European Networks with the Neighbouring countries’ networks

8 Sufficient accessibility to open up regional potentials. Unleashing regional diversity and endogenous development Universal access to services of general interest
