Thematic scope Metropolitan regions are the primary growth poles for regions and countries and they are seen as key drivers of territorial development both in the national and European context. Metropolisation is a complex process, affecting cities on a social, economic and spatial level. Therefore it is important to understand the logic of metropolitan development in order to determine what potentials should be mobilized. The project focuses on processes of urban development that many cities and regions in the EU currently experience. Emphasis is laid on comparing cities, thus enabling them to identify similarities and common challenges in relation to the project’s three main themes: living conditions, mobility and governance in the metropolitan context. The analysis will focus on the metropolitan areas of Berlin, Paris and Warsaw attempting to gather information and knowledge that can be used in the planning, development and management practice of metropolitan cities and areas. Metropolises are the drivers of Europe’s economic growth, providing benefits of agglomeration for businesses, and attracting the most dynamic companies and fastest growing industries. Th e higher productivity and greater degree of innovation within metropolises compared with other regions explain their economic performance. The largest urban areas are generally called metropolises – even though there is no universally accepted definition of the term. In this study, any large and economically significant urban area is viewed as a metropolis. In most cases, the geographic area of a metropolis does not coincide with that of an administrative municipality, but rather consists typically of a central city – usually one, but in some metropolises two or more – and a variable number of suburban municipalities around it. In other words, by a metropolis we mean a functional urban area. Most of the metropolises have more than one million inhabitants. However, some smaller urban areas are included because of their major economic or administrative significance. On the other hand, some urban areas with more than one million inhabitants are excluded. At the European level, one consequence of the regional statistical divisions used is that the borders of the metropolises are not defi ned by homogeneous criteria. In some cases the area of the metropolis is significantly larger than the functional urban area, whereas in others the area is clearly smaller.
