Presentation of results regarding data assessment during the 17th Nordic Geographers Meeting

Nordregio presented preliminary results regarding data assessment & collection, mapping & spatial analysis of socio-economic disparities at the regional level in a session during the 17th Nordic Geographers Meeting held in Stockholm, Sweden, 18th – 21st June 2017. The presentation’s title was “Detecting and visualizing the territorial inequalities across Europe over time” and took place in session “B4:2 Territorial inequalities and territorial cohesion – European dimension”. The session was organized by IMAJINE (another project funded by EU Horizon 2020), which provided an opportunity for interesting interaction between the two project teams. IMAJINE adopts a relatively similar approach: its focus is on formulating new integrative policy mechanisms to enable European, national and regional government agencies to more effectively address territorial inequalities within the European Union.  The IMAJINE project, however, proposes to address the problem of territorial inequalities through an inter-disciplinary and multi-scalar approach integrating perspectives from economics, human geography, political science and sociology and combining macro-scale econometric analysis and the generation and assessment of new quantitative survey data. This primarily quantitative approach is combined with regionally-focused qualitative empirical case studies from 11 EU member states.
