6 III. Brief summary of the operation Please provide brief summary of the operation's background, objectives, main activities and expected effects. It is strongly advised that this field is filled in after the entire Application Form has been completed. (maximum 2800 characters) METREX, the Network of European Metropolitan Regions and Areas, was founded in 1996 and has members from 50 authorities and 36 metropolitan areas. One of its twin purposes is the exchange of knowledge on spatial planning and development issues between practitioners. The METREX Practice Benchmark contains 25 benchmarks of effective Competence, Capability and Process and was the outcome of the InterMETREX pilot project under Interreg IIC. OBJECTIVE-to develop and apply the Benchmark within the EU and across the wider Europe to promote and foster effective metropolitan spatial planning and development practice. This is one means of supporting the European Spatial Development Perspective objective of harmonious, balanced and sutainable development. These are also key issues across the wider Europe and at the metropolitan level. ACTIVITIES/OUTPUTS-10 Analysis and Synthesis Workshops ( ), involving 32 partner authorities from across the wider Europe, will result in a truly European Practice Benchmark to raise the level of effective practice in Europe's 120 metropolitan areas. A related output will be an e-atlas for informed practitioner networking. 6

This field should only be filled in if the answer to VII.1. is "yes". (maximum 1425 characters) 10 partners from third countries will make Applications for co-funding to the EU programmes concerned (and Zurich to the Swiss Government) based on this Interreg IIIC Application. The Programme Manual indicates that travel and accommodation costs for partners from third countries can be supported by Interreg IIIC. However, because these costs ammount to Euro's it is not possible for the Lead Partner to pay them on behalf of colleagues in third countries and to then claim co-funding under Interreg IIIC. It is for this reason that all third country costs, including travel and accommodation, are included in the co-financing being sought under PHARE, Tarcis, MEDA and CARDS. This will largely fund Workshops 7, 8 and 9 and contribute to Workshop 10 (see Budget in Annex IV). Cyprus (and perhaps Malta) will need special consideration under PHARE or Interreg IIIC (further Application). METREX will pay the travel/subsistence costs for 3 contributors to Workshops 7-9 who were unable to become partners (see Diagram and Annex AIII.3) VII.4. Total budget for the EU programmes for third countries (EUR), including national co-financing: 282,

11 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE OPERATION 1. Rationale 1.1. Brief history of the Operation Please describe the history of the operation and partnership. How the operation's idea has developed? How the partners have been involved in these processes? For RFOs please provide description of regional partnerships and their involvement. (maximum 2800 characters) HISTORY OF THE PROJECT-METREX is the Network of European Metropolitan Regions and Areas that was formed in 1996 with the support of the European Commission (DGXVI) (see It now has 50 member authorities from 36 metropolitan areas. It's objectives are the exchange of knowledge on spatial planning and development issues between practitioners and the contribution of the metropolitan dimension to planning at the European level. In 1999 METREX and the Junta Metropolitana do Porto, again with the support of DGXVI, held the Porto Convocation to promote a metropolitan contribution to the objectives of the European Spatial Devlopment Perspective. An outcome was the published Porto Practice Benchmark. This was tested through the InterMETREX pilot project, with 6 partners, through Interreg IIC. The result was the METREX Practice Benchmark containing 25 benchmarks of effective spatial planning and development practice covering Competence, Capability and Process. The InterMETREX project has been developed and promoted by the members of METREX through the published InterMETREX Prospectus in 2001 and partner meetings in at Schiphol and in Genova in

12 1.2. Problem description Please describe what problem(s) and / or issue(s) the operation will address. Provide short background to the problem(s) / issue(s). What is the relevance of the problem / issue to partnership and in the context of the INTERREG IIIC Programme? (maximum 1900 characters) ISSUE-Some 60-70% of the population of the wider Europe live in metropolitan areas. The realisation of the objectives of the ESDP, of harmonious, balanced and sutainable development, will depend to a large extent on the effectiveness of metropolitan governance and spatial planning and development practice. InterMETREX seeks to improve this effectiveness through the exchange of knowledge and experience between practitioners and the dissemination and implemention of their findings and conclusions. RELEVANCE-Many European countries are now recognising the need for metropolitan governance. For example, in Germany metropolitan regional authorities have been set up in Stutgart, Hannover and Frankfurt. In France Communautes Urbaines are being established for major city regions and in Italy legislation will allow metropolitan authorities to be established. The InterMETREX project will be of practical benefit to existing metropolitan authorities and to those that are being set up. The partnership reflects this range of interests. InterMETREX directly assists the objective of Interreg IIIC to improve the effectiveness of policies and instruments for regional development and cohesion Objectives of the operation Please state the overall objective and sub-objectives of the operation. (maximum 1900 characters) OVERALL OBJECTIVE-To contribute effective metropolitan spatial planning and development practice to the ESDP objective of harmonious, balanced and sustainable development, through the development and application of a European Practice Benchmark to, SUB OBJECTIVE 1- Enhance the competence, capability and processes of the existing metropolitan authorities of the wider Europe and, SUB OBJECTIVE 2- Provide a basis on which effective metropolitan authorities can be established where these do not exist. 12

13 1.4. Approach and methodology Please describe what approach and methodology (activities, their combination and sequence) will be used to produce the described effects and achieve the objectives of the operation? Why has the specific Type of Operation been selected? The description should be in line with the information provided in Annex III. (maximum 2800 characters) APPROACH /METHODOLOGY-The project will be realised through a series of 10 Workshops, involving 32 partners and 30 metropolitan regions and areas, held in two phases over the period in metropolitan areas across the EU and third countries. Phase 1 will be 5 Analysis Workshops to assess EU metropolitan spatial planning practice against the METREX Practice Benchmark and a Synthesis Workshop at the METREX Barcelona biennial Conference in 2004 to identify effective practice to be embodied into the Benchmark. Phase 2 will be 3 Analysis Workshops to assess practice in third countries against this developed Benchmark, reflecting the synthesis of EU practice, and an overall Synthesis Workshop at the METREX Szczecin Conference in The outcome of the whole project will then be a European Practice Benchmark for dissemination at Szczecin and through the METREX web site. An e-atlas, as demonstrated on the web site, will be produced from partner information provided at Workshops as an aid to continued networking. The logistics draw on the experience of the InterMETREX pilot project. TYPE OF OPERATION-A Network operation best matches the strategic focus of InterMETREX Intensity of Co-operation What will be the intensity of Co-operation in the operation? Exchange and dissemination of experience Transfer of instruments and projects Development of new approaches Joint development of new approaches o 13

14 1.6. Components of the Operation The operation can be sub-divided into maximum five components. Component is a grouping of activities within the operation, which have been inter-linked thematically (e.g. activities contributing to the achievement of the same sub-objective) and/or operationally (activities deriving from the operational set-up of the programme, e.g. management of the operation or information and publicity measures). It is advised that Component 1 is used for describing management and co-ordination activities of the operation. Activities should not be grouped into the components geographically (by partner) or time-wise (by years, months, etc.). Grouping operation's activities into logical components is recommended in order to ease the management and co-ordination of the operation. Title of the component shall preferably reflect the focus of the component. Describe the strategic focus of the component. What are the aims of this component? Which sub-objective of the operation will this component help to achieve? Describe the planned results of the component. List measurable and tangible indicators, which will be used to determine whether the aims of the component have been achieved.

16 1.7. Expected effects of the operation Please describe, what effects (outputs, results and impact) will the operation produce? What will be the outputs (tangible and visible outcomes or products of the operation's activities)? What results will these outputs produce in relation to the objectives of the operation? What impact will the achieved results create in a long-term perspective? Whenever possible, please use measurable indicators in describing the effects. The description should be in line with the information provided in the Annex III. (maximum 1900 characters) EFFECTS-The outcome of InterMETREX will be raised levels of effectiveness of spatial planning planning and development practice at the metropolitan level both within the EU and across the wider Europe. It is across this wider area that the issue of urban balance applies. For example, it will be important for countries about to join the EU, and those that are closely related to it, to adopt effective practice for sustainable development (see 2.3 below). OUPUT-This outcome will be facilitated through the output of a European Benchmark of spatial planning and development practice. RESULTS-This outcome will be achieved through the dissemination, adoption and implementation of the Benchmark within the120 recognised metropolitan areas in the wider Europe, including the 36 in METREX. MEASURABLE INDICATORS- This outcome can be measured by the adoption and application of the individual benchmarks (25 in the current METREX Benchmark covering issues of Competence, Capability and Process) within the metropolitan areas of the wider Europe Durability of the operation's results Please describe how the durability of the operation's achievements will be ensured? Who will own the produced outputs? How, when and by whom will the outputs and results be used and how will they be maintained after the operation has been finalised? How will the impact of the operation be sustained? (maximum 1900 characters) DURABILITY-One of the twin purposes of the METREX Network is the exchange of knowledge and experience on spatial planning and development practice (see 1.1 above). It therefore has a central interest in an effective outcome to the InterMETREX project and its dissemination, adoption and implementation. METREX will continue to monitor the use of the Benchmark, after the completion of the InterMETREX project, and to maintain its relevance to practitioners. OWNERSHIP-It is intended that all 120 metropolitan areas in the wider Europe will "own" the output, the European Benchmark, in the sense that they will recognise its practical benefits and use them. SUSTAINING THE IMPACT-Practice evolves to meet changing circumstances and a Benchmark is literally a point of reference from which to continue a process of evolution. METREX has a central interest in sustaining the evolution and effectiveness of the Benchmark and will continue to do so through its ongoing Network actvities. 16

17 1.9. Location of activities Please indicate where the main activities of the operation will be carried out and have the main impact. The applicant may attach to the Application Form a map showing the location of the operation's activities. (maximum 1425 characters) LOCATIONS-The 5 Analysis Workshops (1-5) within the EU will be held in Stuttgart, Stockholm, Bologna, Porto and London, hosted by METREX member authorities. The EU Synthesis Workshops will be held in Barcelona in 2004 in association with the METREX Barcelona biennial Conference. The 3 Analysis Workshops in the wider Europe will he held in Budapest, Riga and Valletta, hosted by METREX members or by the Malta Planning Authority in the case of Valletta. The Synthesis Workshop for the project as a whole will be held in association with the METREX bi-ennial Conference in Szczecin in IMPACT-The findings and conclusions of each of the 10 Workshops will be disseminated, as outputs, to the 120 metropolitan areas across the wider Europe through the METREX web site in EN FR IT ES DE. Their impact on practice will therefore be beyond the locality of the Workshops Information and publicity measures Please describe how the operation and its results will be marketed in public? How the results will be disseminated? Which target groups will be addressed? What means (e.g. homepages, publications, exhibitions, etc.) will be used? (maximum 1900 characters) MARKETS-The primary market for the METREX Benchmark, as it develops to a European Benchmark through InterMETREX, will be the 120 recognised metropolitan areas of the wider Europe. However, it is clear that there will also be a wider interest in the evolving Benchmark from within metropolitan areas from all the public and private stakeholders in the strategic planning process. There will also be interest beyond metropolitan areas at the national and European levels. The implementation of EU and national planning frameworks, such as the ESDP, depends to a considerable extent on the effectiveness of metropolitan planning. DISSEMINATION-Contact will be maintained with these markets through the METREX web site and links to it. More directly, the 2004 and 2006 METREX bi-ennial Conferences will feature the outcome of InterMETREX and will promote the resulting European Benchmark. The Benchmark will be published in EN FR IT ES DE 17

18 2. Policy context 2.1. Contribution to the Programme objectives Please describe, how the operation will help to achieve the objectives of the INTERREG IIIC Programme? What influence will the operation have on EU and national policies and instruments for regional development and cohesion? Will the operation introduce any innovative elements? Describe also the added value the trans-national, interregional co-operation will bring to the operation? (maximum 1900 characters) ACHIEVING EU POLICIES-InterMETREX will help to realise the objective of Interreg IIIC, to improve the effectiveness of policies and instruments for regional development and cohesion, by contributing to the harmonious, balanced and sustainable development of Europe sought bythe ESDP. It will do this through the further development and application of benchmarks for effective spatial planning and development practice at the metropolitan level. INNOVATION-The need for effective metropolitan goveranance, to realise wider EU objectives for sustainable development and to address the common strategic issues faced by many European metropolitan areas (see 2.3 below), requires innovation. New structures and practices will be appropriate responses to changing metropolitan strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT). InterMETREX will seek to embody these in the European Benchmark. ADDED VALUE-Interregional cooperation is essential to achieve the outcomes of the Analysis Workshops and the outputs of the Synthesis Workshops. The added value of this co-operation is more effective spatial planning and development practice Relation to specific Topic for co-operation Please describe the relation of the operation and partnership to the selected Topic for Co-operation. Describe any links to relevant programmes and projects and highlight the joint interests and differences. Information should be provided on both the existing and finalised activities in the same thematic field. What added value will the operation produce in relation to these? (maximum 1900 characters) CO-OPERATION ON SPATIAL PLANNING ISSUES-One of the key issues faced by all metropolitan regions and areas, as they consider their position in the evolving wider Europe, is how they can capitalise on their strengths, address their weaknesses, realise their opportunities and meet the threats they may face (SWOT analysis). The spatial planning and development process is one means through which these considerations can be addressed and an appropriate strategy and related policies, programmes and projects can be adopted and implemented. To be effective this process requires the involvement and commitment of a wide range of related "stakeholders" in the process. The partners in InterMETREX have a strong common interest in the identification and adoption of effective spatial planning and development practice in order to meet these challenges. LINKS-The PolyMETREX project is also being promoted through the South Zone to explore the issue of polycentric relationships between metropoilitan areas. It is complementary to InterMETREX which is concerned with spatial planning within metropolitan areas. Both projects seek to support the ESDP objectives (see 2.1 above). 18

19 2.3. Contribution to sustainable development Please describe the contribution of the operation on the sustainable development of the participating regions? Describe also the methods for making the concept visible in the implementation of the operation. (maximum 1900 characters) SUSTAINABILITY-Many of the key issues for sustainable development can only be addressed effectively at the metropolitan level, including, for example, urban renewal and urban sprawl, balanced economic development, social cohesion, integrated land use and transportation, infrastructure provision, the vitality and viability of city and town centres and environmental impact. The identification, adoption and implementation of effective practice, in terms of metropolitan governance and spatial planning and development, is one important means of promoting sustainable urban development. It is also a necsssary step towards the better urban balance sought by the ESDP which cannot be achieved if some of Europe's metropolitan areas do not have the competence, capability and processes for effective strategic decision making. VISIBILITY-The 120 metropolitan areas in the wider Europe, together with related European institutions and networks, will be invited to the METREX Barcelona and Szczecin Conferences at which the evolving Benchmark will be presented and promoted Contribution to other Community policies Please explain how the operation will (directly and indirectly) contribute to other Community policies, in particular equal opportunities for men and women and the environment. Please state if the operation will (a) have equality as the main focus, (b) be positive in terms of equality, or (c) be neutral in terms of equality. Please state if the operation will (a) have environment as the main focus, (b) be environmentally friendly or (c) environmentally neutral. (maximum 1900 characters) CONTRIBUTION TO OTHER COMMUNITY POLICIES-Social and economic inclusion is directly supported by a sustainable approach to spatial planning and development. Metropolitan regions and areas that address the key issues identified in 2.3 above, through effective spatial planning and development practice, will take an inclusive approach to, for example, the location of social and economic development, the provision of public transport and the use and reuse of urban land and buildings. They will also support environmental renewal and regeneration and minimise the environmentall impact of development. EQUALITY- InterMETREX will therefore be positive in terms of equality. ENVIRONMENT-InterMETREX will also be postive in terms of the environment. 19

GUIDING AND OVERSEEING-will be by the Lead Partner, informed by the Managing Committee.

Partners will make their claims for co-funding, after Workshops/Conferences, through the Lead Partner who will then submit consolidated claims/progress Reports to the MA/JTS, by Component, at the six monthly intervals prescribed in Annex IV.0. Partner claims will be certified by a financially qualified person not associated with the project. Repayment of claims by the JTS will be through the Lead Partner to relevant partners and any resulting issues will be resolved through discussions based on the Protocol.
