Content of program
ESPON is an EU-funded programme that supports public authorities responsible for designing territorial policies with quality expertise.
ESPON creates evidence and knowledge by developing 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 ESPON about policy support needs and become an ESPON stakeholder.
The studies have a territorial focus, which means that the analyses are adjusted to the specificity and needs of the people and the places studied.
For the ESPON 2030 Programme, studies and events are clustered within the so-called Thematic Action Plans (TAPs):
|Regions / countries for funding||EU Member States|
Island (Ísland), Liechtenstein, Norway (Norge), Switzerland (Schweiz/Suisse/Svizzera)

ESPON is regularly publishing calls for tenders, expressions of interest for stakeholders, internships and public consultations.
