Evidence Briefs

The ESPON Evidence Brief is a new, short and informative publication targeting policy makers and practitioners and building on main research results from recent ESPON projects in a condensed and easy-accessible manner.

The themes of the brief highlight key territorial structures, trends and dynamics at European, national and regional levels that can feed into current policy discussions on territorial cohesion and development. The maps and graphics are selected to complement and facilitate the understanding of the specific theme.

In order to support a broad use by policy-makers, practitioners as well as stakeholders and a wider public, the ESPON Evidence Briefs are covering 4 pages that can be printed, double-sided on A3 sheet and folded into a leaflet.
