ESPON Italian Evidence in changing Europe


The book is part of the activities of ESPON Contact Point Italy. It includes the results of the contribution of the Italian partners in the development of projects under the ESPON 2013 Programme, which stands for European Observation Network for Territorial Development and Cohesion. The texts summarize and highlight, among other things, the relations with the regional development policies of Italy, placing them in a framework of transnational cooperation involving the 28 + 4 EU Countries.
Addressing aspects of European territorial policy, ranging from innovation and knowledge accessibility, from the polycentrism to  metropolitan areas, from migration to globalization, the authors highlight the position of Italy  and of  regions also in relation to the objectives set by Europe 2020. A place is devoted to the regional experiences that  in the ESPON found a stimulus and an opportunity for discussion and to train  the experiences aimed at the younger generations and the decision makers.
