SWEDEN: Know your regions by ESPON

The event, organised by Swedish ECP in cooperation with KTH and the masters programme 'Sustainable urban Planning and Design' and the course 'City Networks in Regional Contexts' was held on November 25 in the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

The purpose of the event was to introduce ESPON for the master's students and how they can use ESPON projects and results in their future works and thesis writings. It is also of importance that the spread the ESPON projects will reach a wider audience and not only “pure” researchers.

Mats Johansson (KTH and Swedish ECP) began to present ESPON - background, content and some (Swedish) experiences. The following presentations were based on the ESPON-projects TOWN, EDORA and SEMIGRA in which he participated. Lisa van Well from the Swedish Geotechnical Institute (SGI) continued by discussing “Climate Adaptation Governance in Sweden: Implementing the ESPON TANGO Framework” a theme that was based on the TANGO-project a project where Lisa van Well was project manager. Lukas Smas from Nordregio presented the project and the handbook (an e-book) produced in the project DeTec under the heading “Territorial approaches and tensions: making ESPON knowledge more tangible for detecting regional potential and challenges”.
