4 juin 2014 - 5 juin 2014    


This seminar takes place in Nafplion, Greece

ESPON invites policy makers, practitioners, scientists and experts for a two days open seminar organised in cooperation with the Hellenic Presidency of the Council of the European Union and takes place in Nafplion, Greece.

The two priorities of the Hellenic Presidency, namely blue growth and urban poverty, will be examined in the context of the current economic crisis with the two-fold purpose of:
(1) Allowing policy-makers, practitioners and researchers to share concrete experiences, discuss the use of territorial evidence and identify development options relevant to the two themes
(2) Demonstrating the usefulness and capability of the ESPON knowledge base for policy-makers, practitioners and researchers alike.
