The ESPON study on ‘Possible European Territorial Futures’ explores different futures for Europe and their territorial impacts. The aim is to generate new insight on possible future developments and develop a territorial foresight approach which supports policy makers in assessing the robustness and ‘future-proof’ of their policies. The study will also result in a practical handbook for the (ESPON) research community and planning practitioners on how to conduct European territorial foresight studies.
