CSIL experts realise a study on Territorial Agenda 2020

March 2014, 

The European Commission, Directorate Regional and Urban Policy, Inclusive Growth, Urban and Territorial Development and Northern Europe, has selected CSIL in order to realise a study on ‘Territorial Agenda 2020 put in practice – enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of Cohesion Policy by a place-based approach’. A kick-off meeting took place in Brussels on January 22nd to launch the study. For the purpose of this study, CSIL experts have selected 50 good-practices across EU28 Member States in terms of place-based-approach. For each proposed good-practice, a summary fiche with key information and reasons for its selection has been prepared and submitted to the European Commission. The next step will be the identification of 20-24 case studies. Once the final list of cases is decided country experts will develop the case studies with on-the-field and desk activity. Pilot case studies for the Apulia (IT) and Terassa (ES) projects are currently under preparation by CSIL experts in order to test the methodology.
