The Metropolises of North-West Europe in Figures
One of the aims of the GEMACA II project is to produce comparative data on the economic evolution of the metropolises of north-west Europe.
A selection of the data gathered on 14 metropolises is presented in this document. It is original and innovative in that it covers economic regions which were defined using the same criteria with a view to making them as geographically comparable as possible.
The study was made possible through a partnership among:
- the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE),
- the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT),
- the Institut für Landes- und Stadtenwicklungsforschung des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen (ILS) and
- the Institut d'Aménagement et d'Urbanisme de la Région d'Ile-de-France (IAURIF), who co-ordinated the whole project.
