ESPON 2013 Programme Info Day on New Calls and Partner Café Call for Proposals on Targeted Analyses
Priority 2: Targeted Analyses based on User Demand Objectives: Action 1: Provide evidence and knowledge based on ESPON results on strengths and weaknesses of regions/larger territories from European perspective, giving regions the option to compare themselves to other regions, thereby finding competitive advantages for development and cooperation Action 2: Improve usefulness of ESPON results by testing new, experimental and innovative options Action 3: Provide analytical support and evidence based on ESPON results on thematic priorities in cooperation with other SF Programmes Geographical coverage of projects: More limited than Priority 1 with greater geographical detail Due to transferable character of projects entire ESPON territory benefits
Priority 2: Targeted Analyses based on User Demand A two-step procedure towards Targeted Analysis Submission of expressions of interest (EoI) by stakeholders (i.e. public authorities of EU27+4, partnerships of regions and/or cities). EoIs approved by ESPON MC are basis for development of project specifications => Call for proposals for targeted analyses addressed to research institutes, universities and experts with the necessary analytical capacity to carry out the analysis. Specific role of stakeholders in Priority 2 projects Define content of projects and set up project specifications in cooperation with ESPON CU Involved in selection of team of experts Give guidance to Targeted Analysis (-> Steering Committee) Apply project results in practice and disseminate results
Priority 2: Targeted Analyses based on User Demand Implementation method: Steering Committee guiding the project, involving Stakeholders ESPON CU TPG/team of experts [Umbrella organisations, other interested stakeholders] Please note: For any questions in relation to any of the Targeted Analyses please contact the ESPON CU directly (not the stakeholders)
Call for Proposals on Targeted Analyses Outputs: Delivery of outputs varies depending on projects length, usually request for: Inception report Interim report Draft final report Final report Presentation of project results at certain events are foreseen for all projects (see individual project specifications) Max. budget foreseen should cover all costs for completing the study, incl. travel expenses and attendance at meetings One single proposal will be selected for each of the themes indicated

GROSEE – Growth Poles in South-East of Europe
2. KITCASP – Key Indicators for Territorial Cohesion and Spatial Planning Purpose: To examine practice in the use of economic, demographic, social and environmental data to inform the development of national spatial strategies and territorial development policies in the stakeholder countries. To identify the most suitable core set of key indicators of territorial cohesion, competitiveness and sustainable development on the basis of their relevance to national policy-making and European transferability. Key questions are: o What are good practices on the use of data to inform territorial policy development? How can the stakeholders make better use of ESPON data in developing their spatial policies? o What data is needed for developing reliable key indicators, particularly for measuring territorial cohesion, competitiveness and sustainable development? o How can indicators for different countries be compared and how can they be regularly updated and how is this to be managed?
Group of Stakeholders: Scottish Governments Directorate for the Built Environment, United Kingdom - [Lead Stakeholder] Spatial Policy Unit, Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, Republic of Ireland State Regional Development Agency, Analyses and Research Coordination, Division & International Projects and Communication Division, Republic of Latvia Icelandic National Planning Agency, Iceland Department of the Environment, Regional Planning, Agriculture and Fishing, Basque Government, Spain Project length: February 2012 – July 2013 Budget: Max KITCASP – Key Indicators for Territorial Cohesion and Spatial Planning
Envisaged results: Good practices in the use of data to inform territorial policy development; Recommendations on how ESPON research and data can be better used in the preparation of national spatial strategies and territorial development policies; Identification of key indicators of territorial cohesion, competitiveness and sustainable development; Guidelines on the use of ESPON data and indicators in the preparation and monitoring of spatial strategies and territorial development policies; Recommendations to the stakeholders on how their capacity for spatial analysis can be strengthened (addressing issues of skills, training, institutional relationships, resources and management); Recommendations to ESPON on national needs and taking forward work on measuring territorial cohesion, competitiveness and sustainable development. 2.
