Services of general interest traditionally comprehend electronic communications, postal services, electricity, gas, water and transport. Policymakers more recent documents tend to be more comprehensive and also look at labour market services, education, health care, child care, social care, culture or (social) housing. Socio-economic policies much focus on ensuring the provision of services of general interest to all citizens and enterprises in the European Union. Citizens and businesses rightly expect to have access to affordable high-quality services of general interest throughout the European Union. Territorial cohesion and development policies integrated these general policy ambitions and developed a territorial approach towards services of general interest. The territorial evidence to support the implementation, monitoring and evaluation of territorial policy measures regarding services of general interest remains nevertheless insufficient. The project is expected to provide the territorial evidence filling this gap.
