‘CBPMRs‘ – where are they?
The spatial setting: The
Functional Urban Areas
(FUAs) of the cross-border
polycentric metropolitan
regions (CBPMRs)
Questions to address
1. What is the added value of integrated approaches to the development of
territories?
2. What concepts and experiences exist in building integrated territorial
strategies for macro-regions and across borders?
3. How could integrated strategies be further promoted and contribute to
current policy challenges?

Greater Region:
- “Economic metropolis”
- “Laboratory of Europe”
- “Mobile and accessible
region”
