ESPON 2013 Applied Research Sounding Boards

ESPON 2013 is an applied research programme partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund and partly by the 28 EU member states, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.  Its research has built an evidence base to support policy development for territorial cohesion and development.
