The project involved research on the integration of the European Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP) and the Urban Framework for Action (UFA) into the 2000-06 Objective 1 Structural Fund programmes. Undertaken at the same time as a parallel Objective 2 project, it had three main aims: (i) to assess whether the Policy Guidelines and Aims of the ESDP and the policy options of the UFA had been integrated into the Objective 1 programmes; (ii) to consider how this had been done, and; (iii) to draw together an overview by providing a typology of the spatial and urban actions which correspond with the integration of ESDP and UFA guidelines, aims and options
