The utility of this study resides from the need to understand and identify the modalities through which the three capital cities can act as drivers of competitiveness and innovation and European growth poles and thus support the emergence of a new European integrated area of concentrated economic growth. This report presents in a synthetic way the differences and complementarities between Athens, Sofia and Bucharest metropolitan regions and define in this respect sectoral and integrated policy recommendations to foster development and reduce the economic development gap between South East of Europe and the European Core.
