The project involved research on the territorial effects of applying the EU acquis, Community policies and pre-accession Instruments. The study was undertaken with a view to formulating policy recommendations for the support of territorial cohesion in an enlarged EU. In particular the research focused on: the development and application of a methodology for the territorial impact assessment of past pre-accession programmes and of the adoption of the acquis; investigate the interplay between EU policies and national spatial policies; recommend further policy developments for the support of territorial cohesion. Working as part of an international consortium, EPRC is responsible for a number of thematic components of the research and for the country analysis of the Czech Republic.
