ESPON organised in cooperation with the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union its annual internal seminar under the topic of ‘Territorial Evidence for Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 and Territorial Agenda 2020’. The event took place in Vilnius on 4 and 5 December 2013 and gathered about 150 participants representing members of the ESPON Monitoring Committee, the ECP network, TPGs as well as stakeholders from targeted analyses.

The aim of the event was to discuss the outputs delivered by the ESPON 2013 Programme, and explore long-term perspectives and demands for future European territorial evidence in the light of the recent proposals to improve EU Cohesion Policy in the period 2014-2020 as well as its relation to the Territorial Agenda 2020.

Partners of USESPON Project (Cliff Hague, Katarzyna Wojnar, Volker Schmidt-Seiwert, Stella Kyvelou-Chiotini, and Estelle Evrard) took part in the session "Capitalisation activities of the ECP network: Development and perspectives". The session provided a concrete and stimulating insight into the activities of the ECP network and their experiences made. It brought ECP representatives from the USESPON and the other TNAs projects to the stage to engage in an inter-active dialogue and demonstration of the multiple ways of achieving capitalisation of ESPON results in the transnational and national context. The discussion addressed possible improvements that could contribute to a wider outreach  and use of ESPON territorial evidence in ESPON post 2013.
