TeMoRI – Territorial Monitoring update and Regional potential Index for the Baltic Sea Region

This project will update and adjust the ESPON BSR-TeMo monitoring system to provide input and material for following and evaluating the territorial developments in the Baltic Sea Region in relation to the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).

The project and its material shall serve as input for a strategy and vision project which will provide a platform for discussions at the 7th Strategy Forum of the EUSBSR taking place in Stockholm in November 2016. Tillväxtverket (Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth) is one of the organisers of the conference and also the initiators of this project. The territorial monitoring update is done in close collaboration with Jacek Zaucha, Tomas Hanell (Eurofutures Finland) and Carsten Schürmann (RRG Spatial Planning and Geoinformation) and builds on the ESPON BSR-TeMo concept.

As part of this work, Nordregio will also update and expand (geographically to the entire BSR region) the Nordregio RPI (regional potential index). Both aspects of the project will also be discussed at parallel sessions at the strategy forum in November. The outcome of the project will be updated indicator systems, new and updated maps about territorial trends in the BSR region, a report, and material for the conference (strategy forum).
