The aim of this project was to encourage and facilitate the use of ESPON findings in the creation and monitoring of integrated territorial development strategies and to support transnational learning about the actual and potential contribution of ESPON to integrated policy-making. Its focus was active learning, using ESPON analysis and related data in the development of integrated territorial development strategies at all levels of decision-making. It aimed to maximise transnational cooperation that recognises the importance of working with the diversity of institutional practice and regional potentials that characterises European territories. The approach was to share tools, materials and processes that can be adapted to national circumstances while maintaining comparability and transferability across the project partners.
