3 ODEN - with Raven Partners Hugin and Munin In the Nordic mythology, Oden was the omniscient god, depending on his two flying messengers Hugin and Munin. Oden had sacrificed one of his own eyes to get full access to the knowledge accumulated in Mimer´s well. Oden also researched tacit and historic knowledge hanging under the branches of Yggdrasil, the World Tree.

4 ODEN Kick-off January Options for spatially balanced Developments in the ENlargement of the EU ESPON Action 1.1.3

5 Agenda Friday Jan Words of Welcome Folke Snickars ESPON update Peter Mehlbye Research Programme Lars Olof Persson Partners presentations (max. 15 min each) Preliminary Work plan Lars Olof Persson Comments Peter Mehlbye 5. Policy recommendations Dinner together at Tennstopet

6 Saturday January 25, Towards a common conceptual and methodological framework. Introductions followed by discussion. Chair: Folke Snickars Light lunch Work plan Lars Olof Persson Practicalities Lisa van Well End of Workshop Evening on own

7 5 WPs 1. Conceptual Framework 2. Data & indicators 3. Diagnosis: Spatial tissue, polycentrism, discontinuties in CCs and border regions 4. Spatial impact of enlargement

8 ODEN´s Geographical Scope New EU Periphery and beyond Candidates New external and internal border regions Global integration zones EU 15 Geo Focus Less favoured regions Urban nodes NO and CH

9 Polycentricity and R-U in CC contexts Transition and Transformation Convergence within the Enlarged EU Accessibility Barriers Institutions WP 1 Developing the Theoretical Framework and Methods

10 Co-ordination Availability and Comparability CC data Collection Selection of Indicators Quantitative focus but also Qualitative Approaches WP 2 Data and Indicators

11 WP 3 Diagnosis of Spatial Structures in CCs and Border regions Flows, interaction, accessibility Identification of functional links/institutional barriers Emerging networks of cities, polycentricity, Co-operation and integration processes Convergence/divergence, wealth distribution

12 On sectoral structure, GDP, trade, investment, employment, migration in the regions Focus on least favoured and border region 2 scenario studies: Trends impacting Spatial Economy, Social Structures and Ecol Capital Impact Assessment of TEN and TINA WP 4 Spatial Impact of Enlargement on the EU and Accession Countries

13 Based on Diagnosis and Scenario WPs: Policy options for balanced spatial development Territorial cohesion Stakeholders participation and negotiations Need for diversified policy intervention SF after 2006 WP 5 Policy recommendations

14 Time-table Jan 2003-Dec 2005 Interim report 1 March 2003 Interim report 2 August 2003 Interim report 3 August 2004 Final report December 2005 WP1Overview concepts, method. Expanded terms and methodology WP2Data, indicators needed, to be col- lected, mapmaking Additional data collection accession countries Processing new database, More identification of indicators, mm method WP3Prel, results of EU spatial tissue, structure in CC Enlarg.
