31 juillet 2002ContactVincent Gollain, Dominique Lecomte

This study was conducted in the framework of the GEMACA II project (Group for European Metropolitan Areas Comparative Analysis, second project), which addresses the
competitiveness of the major metropolitan areas in Europe.

The different works were made possible thanks to the partnerships set up between:

  • The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE),
  • The Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT),
  • The Institute für Landes und Stadtentwicklungsforschung des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (ILS),
  • And the Institut d'Aménagement et d'Urbanisme de la Région Ile-de-France (IAU îdF), also in charge of the general coordination of the project.

These works have been financed by the ERDF through the INTERREG IIC programme.
