Spatial Development in Europe

SPESP: Study Programme on European Spatial Planning (1999- 2000)

As a pilot phase in the preparation for a European network of institutes of spatial research, the ministers in charge of spatial development of the member states of the European Union have launched a one-year study programme to analyse current issues in European spatial development related to the European Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP). Germany is represented in the study programme by the Federal Office for Building and Spatial Development (BBR). The BBR in turn co-ordinates the contributions of twelve institutions of spatial planning in Germany, among them IRPUD and the Chair of Spatial Planning in Europe of the Department of Spatial Planning. The contribution of IRPUD consists in its participation in a working group on the theme 'Geographical Position'. It is the task of the group to develop a system of accessibility indicators for the differentiation of European regions, cities and corridors with respect to locational advantage.
