The research is executed in the Horizon 2020 project IMAJINE (Integrative Mechanism for Addressing Spatial Justice and Territorial Inequalities in Europe). IMAJINE aims to formulate new integrative policy mechanisms to enable European, national and regional government agencies to more effectively address territorial inequalities within the European Union. In particular, in this research project, the focus is on the analysis of territorial inequalities and economic growth in Europe. The main objectives to be pursued are:

To review and compare the different definitions for the measurement of economic growth;

To propose alternative approaches based on spatial methods;

To investigate the link between inequality and economic growth;

To verify the proposed approaches at different geographical scales (i.e., NUTS 2, NUTS 3 and local territories);

To evaluate the impact and the effectiveness of EU Territorial Cohesion Policy.
