VI.3)Additional information:

The ESPON programme is at the forefront of promoting and fostering a territorial dimension in European Union Cohesion Policy and sectoral policies through producing evidence and knowledge for public authorities and other policy actors, at all governance scales. Our core mission is to encourage the best use of territorial evidence and a spatial perspective in policy making through a range of activities, including applied research, targeted analyses, data tools, monitoring reports and policy briefs. Scientific quality and analytical standing are prerequisites for ESPON to continue to be widely recognised as a benchmark for territorial knowledge, and as a leading and authoritative voice on pan-European territorial dynamics, trends and patterns. The role of the Scientific Advisory Panel will be as follows: - Provide independent, impartial, rigorous and constructive advisory support on selected ESPON research results and outputs, including critical peer-review feedback, as required. - Participate in internal workshops and provide strategic guidance, insights and feedback to the ESPON EGTC on the overall thematic orientation, quality and relevance of ESPON research, and to brainstorm topical research agendas. Mentor early career PhD researchers in the field of European territorial development as part of a call for competition to be commenced during 2020. The ESPON EGTC shall launch periodic request for services to panel members for specific assignments to be performed on an ad hoc basis, as required.
