All our content is publicly available on our website to download it and use it.
ESPON creates evidence and knowledge. We develop studies based on the needs of European public authorities at all levels. Any local, regional or national authority as well as an EU institution can inform us about policy support needs and become an ESPON stakeholder.
Our studies have a territorial focus, which means that our analyses are adjusted to the specificity and needs of the people and the places we are looking at.
For the ESPON 2030 Programme, our studies and events are clustered within the so-called Thematic Action Plans (TAPs) .
The results of these studies are then used in different ways:
ESPON does not offer calls for grants to its stakeholders. We support them by directly providing services to them, through specialised service providers or in-house support.
We are publishing regularly calls for tenders, expressions of interest for stakeholders, internships and public consultations. Depending on your interest you can follow our news on our website, social media and our newsletter and find an opportunity that is relevant to you.
You can always contact us for more information.
