  • INTERREG Grande Région SDTGR - Spatial Development Perspective of the Greater Region

    • Year: 2018-2021
    • Description : The SDTGR project should lead to a Territorial Development Plan (SDTGR) shared by all the actors of the Greater Region. The SDTGR should make it possible to stimulate innovation within the Greater Region and to increase its attractiveness, in particular through the identification of the challenges and opportunities arising from the current socio-economic development dynamics and the definition of an integrated polycentric and cross-border strategy, which should increase the attractiveness and competitiveness of the Greater Region. The first action consists in building a shared knowledge base and a common language. This will involve establishing diagnoses based on socio-economic and territorial indicators to spatialise the problems and produce a cartographic series of presentations of risks and opportunities. On the basis of these results, the territorial development strategy will be drawn up and actions to be taken to ensure an operational component will be identified. In order to achieve a shared result, the work will be the subject of participatory cross-border workshops bringing together local stakeholders and thematic experts in order to strengthen the support of the stakeholders of the Greater Region. The SDTGR project works in close cooperation with the Inte rreg V A Greater Region United GR - Center for Border Studies and MMUST projects, in order to ensure overall coherence and knowledge transfer between scientific, institutional and operational actors.
