TIGER project has been designed starting from the definitions, concepts and elaborations on the idea of globalization affirmed in the scientific literature (Chase-Dunn, 1999; Sklair, 1999; Beaverstock, Smith and Taylor, 2000; Veltz, 1996; Sassen, 2001). The project has, therefore, taken from the outset a pragmatic approach and has not set the aim of providing a contribution to the globalization theory. Globalization has been analyzed in its spatial dynamics at different geographical scales: the position of the ESPON space and its regions has been considered in the global context and the position of the same has been considered in relation to other areas of the world (TIGER, 2012a). TIGER has, therefore, investigated the role and fate of European regional economies in an increasingly globalized space and has addressed the role of Europe in the global economy. Special emphasis has been given to the internal dynamics of European connections, movements and trades with the rest of the world. This objective has been achieved through the analysis of a wide range of flows connecting Europe to the rest of the world, such as the flows of raw materials, goods, persons (human mobility: tourism and migration), of people for diplomatic missions, of knowledge, of capitals. The project has been structured in work packages (wp). The first wp covered the overall coordination, while others have developed analytical researches. Wp2 dealt with the analysis of urban structures, presence of the gateways, spatial concentrations and inequalities in Europe. Wp3 dealt with the analysis of the position of Europe and its territories in the global flows and the international division of labour, in order to assess the spatial impacts of globalization on the inside. Wp4 focused on cooperation with the rest of the world and to study how Europe operates as a global actor. Wp5 finally summarized the analyses developed by previous wps in order to provide useful and targeted policy options.
