TERREX: Seminar Explores Territorial Development Mechanisms (TDMs)

The European Policy Research Centre (EPRC) organised a TERREX seminar at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) focused on the ex-post Evaluation of Cohesion Policy Territorial Delivery Mechanisms (TDMs) from 2014 to 2020.

The seminar, which drew in participants from diverse territorial instruments, Members States, European Commission representatives, and experts, was structured around three critical causal pathways of TDMs:

  • Developing Territorial Strategies
  • Delivering Integrated Investment
  • Achieving Good Governance

Participants engaged in discussions, sharing spotlight cases and exchanging invaluable experiences. The event also featured organised discussion groups aimed at fostering rich dialogue, particularly reflecting on the added value of these instruments as place-based approaches to Cohesion Policy investments.

The insights gathered from these discussions hold significant weight, informing the European Commission’s ex post evaluation of these instruments and more broadly shaping the territorial orientation of future Cohesion Policy.
