Nordic Peripherality in Europe (2003-2004)

The objective of the study commissioned by the "NERP-EU" Committee of the Nordic Council of Ministers was to assess the peripherality of Nordic regions using accessibility indicators. Specifically, the study was to illustrate differences in travel cost throughout Europe and to show the degree of peripherality of NUTS-3 regions in the whole of Europe and, with higher spatial resolution, for municipalities (NUTS-5) in the Nordic countries. The work was carried out in co-operation with Nordregio – Nordic Centre for Spatial Development, Stockholm. The Final Report can be downloaded from the Nordregio website.
