ESPON Study 1.4.3
Thematic scope and context
This study aims at taking forward the analysis on the European urban
system developed by the ESPON project 1.1.1 (LINK). In doing so it will
consolidate the delimitation of functional urban areas in Europe and go
further in measuring the functional socio-economic specialisation of
urban areas. Based on these new research findings, the project will
then update the typology on European urban areas developed within ESPON
so far and propose future research on the European urban system.
