Cross-border polycentric metropolitan regions
Metroborder stands for Cross-border polycentric metropolitan regions. It is a peer reviewed European multi-annual research project and funded by the European Spatial Planning Observation Network (ESPON). The objective of the ESPON Metroborder project is to determine the added value of an organised metropolitan region in comparison to a “laissez faire” approach and to identify what are the main obstacles of governance in the Greater Region and the Upper Rhine Region. The Metroborder research network is composed of the following institutions: University of Luxemburg (Lead Partner), CEPS/INSTEAD Luxembourg, Free University of Brussels, Regio Basiliensis, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, University of Metz, University of the Saarland, University of Upper Alsace. More information is available directly from ESPON web site.
