ESTIA Interreg IIC
Spatial Planning Priorities in Southeast Europe
Preparing for action
The project “ESTIA-European Space and Territorial Integration Alternatives: Spatial development strategies and policy integration in SE Europe” was launched as a Greek initiative under the INTERREG IIC-CADSES operational programme. The ESTIA partnership is consisting of representative spatial planning institutions and experts from six SE European countries: Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, FYR Macedonia, Romania and FR Yugoslavia.
The formation of a common framework for the coordination of spatial development policies constitutes the central idea of ESTIA. Within the context of such a unified perception, the area is expected to participate in a polycentric new and enlarged Europe as its southeast component. The elaboration of a comprehensive vision for the spatial development of SE Europe constitutes at the same time a dynamic orientation framework for national spatial planning priorities promoting their coordination and hence the reinforcement of spatial cohesion over the entire ESTIA space.
