ESPON 2020 Database Portal – Phase II has started

Phase II of developing the ESPON 2020 Database Portal has started in April 2021, aiming at further developing its functionalities and content. The ESPON 2020 Database Portal provides comprehensive datasets from ESPON research activities as well as basic indicators on territorial development.
Led by the University of Geneva, technical improvements of the database model and system administration are planned. Further, latest data from ESPON projects as well as important baseline indicators will be updated and incorporated to the ESPON 2020 database.
The OIR project team – Stephanie Kirchmayr-Novak, Roland Gaugitsch, Mailin Gaupp-Berghausen – will be responsible for the testing the usability of the system together with relevant user groups as well as for updating and completing the time series data of the basic indicators available in the database. In the course of the project, we will organise a workshop for usability testing by the relevant target groups of the ESPON 2020 database. Further, automated algorithms using R will be applied for the data imputations necessary in order to fill data gaps and provide a complete set of regional long-term indicators on territorial development in Europe. More information on the project can be found on the ESPON website.
