Welcome to the ESPON Database Portal

This site supplies different users (researchers, policy makers and stakeholders at regional and local level) with data, indicators and tools that can be used for European territorial development and cohesion policy formulation, application and monitoring at different geographical levels.

The data included is mainly coming from European institutions such as EUROSTAT and EEA, and from all ESPON projects. By doing this, the ESPON 2020 Database contributes to better understanding territorial structures, the current situation and past and future trends of different types of European territories in relation with various geographical contexts (from local to global) and within a large variety of themes.
