ESPON seminar: "Where are European cities heading? Evidence for better policy-making"December 2016
A seminar organised by the ESPON programme and the Slovak presidency of the EU Council was held in Bratislava on 7-8 December 2016. Its objective was to promote the use of ESPON's findings and tools in decision-making processes, and to discuss future issues for European territories.
The event focused on urban development; it was also an opportunity to present the ESPON tools and to create new partnerships for the targeted analysis activities.
A workshop was led by Jean Peyrony, the MOT's Director-General, on the topic of the challenges and solutions to be found with respect to cross-border cooperation. With presentations of concrete examples (Hungary's borders and the Strasbourg-Kehl tramline), it was an opportunity to set out the work of the Intergovernmental Working Group on Innovative Solutions to Cross-Border Obstacles launched during Luxembourg's presidency by Luxembourg and France, for which the MOT provides the technical secretariat.
The event can be viewed via streaming and all of the presentations are online.Back to list
