ESPON 2013 Programme Info Day on New Calls and Partner Café Call for Proposals on Applied Research
Priority 1: Applied Research on Territorial, Development, Competitiveness and Cohesion Objectives Continued building of new evidence about European regions Address major territorial challenges & consequences for regions Provide comparable regionalised information & policy options for enhancing positive effects of trends, reacting upon negative ones Support assessment of territorial impacts of policies Support identification of potential synergies and/or conflicts between different policies and development opportunities
Priority 1: Applied Research on Territorial, Development, Competitiveness and Cohesion Outputs expected Inception report – approx. 12 weeks after kick-off meeting Interim report– normally 6 months later Draft final report – normally 12 months later Final report – normally 4 months later Deliveries expected Presentations at ESPON seminars Delivery of data and maps – in consultation with ESPON 2013 Database project Delivery of models developed Dissemination of project results Each project is followed and advised by a Sounding Board
Call for Proposals for 2 Applied Research Projects European seas in territorial development Indicators and perspectives for services of general interest in territorial cohesion and development -> Coordination with other relevant ESPON projects essential for all, particularly with ESPON 2013 Database project
European seas in territorial development Main policy demand for research Developing indicators for and mapping of functions of the sea, activities on sea and their relation with development on land Developing a typology for different patterns of sea use Identification of possible improvements of maritime and inland water linkages Governance structures for an Integrated Maritime Policy Budget: max
European seas in territorial development Key research questions (summary): What patterns of sea use and types of coastal regions can be identified? What opportunities for sustainable development, use and exploitation can be identified in European seas? What is the relationship between terrestrial and maritime planning and what are best practices of maritime governance?
Services of General Interest in Territorial Cohesion and Development Main policy demand for research Exploring territorial strategies to services of general interest Definition of a set of (territorial relevant) indicators Mapping the territorial distribution of services of general interest Exploring the role and contribution of services in territorial development, competitiveness and cohesion Budget: max
Services of General Interest in Territorial Cohesion and Development Key research questions (summary): How can the existing definition and classifications of services of general interest be applied from a territorial cohesion and development point of view? What are good indicators to measure the level of services of general interest? What is the current territorial situation of services of general interest throughout the European territory? What territorial development potential and constraints do different types of territories in Europe have?
