Overcoming the remaining obstacles to cross border cooperation: EC seeks views from citizens

yourvoiceOn the occasion of the European Cooperation Day and a week after the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Interreg, the umbrella framework for Regional Policy’s cross border cooperation programmes, the European Commission launched an EU-wide public consultation on the remaining obstacles to cross border cooperation.

Numerous legal and administrative borders still exist and add a burden on cross border activities. As a result, a significant economic potential remains untapped in our border regions. With this public consultation, the Commission will be able to take stock of the opinion of 185 million EU citizens living in border regions in regards to the obstacles they are facing in their everyday life and their suggestions on how to overcome them.

The Commission intends to make concrete proposals to solve remaining cross border issues and needs the valuable input of the citizens who are facing these obstacles on a daily basis.

The questionnaire is available in all 24 languages of the EU and will be open until 21 December 2015.

Many thanks for your support.

Regional and national stakeholders and the interested public in both partner countries as well as the responsible programme bodies and external experts have contributed to the development of the content of the new Cooperation Programme.

The Project Partners will, together with their cross-border partners, have the opportunity to “open borders” through seeking new developmental opportunities beyond the borders and through the creation of developmental solutions in the frame of the entire programme area in Slovenia and Austria.

The Open Call and the application pack (Implementation Manual for Beneficiaries, Annexes to the application form, etc.) will be published in mid-December 2015. In December, also the kick-off event of the programme and the workshops for applicants are foreseen.
