ICC: New forms of cross-border cooperation

core-consult supported and advised the applicant in the process of the development of the transnational objective 3 CENTRAL EUROPE project “Institutionalization of cross-border cooperation – ICC”. Activities included the financial planning, finalization of the project application and coordination activities in close cooperation with principal applicant. The project was handed in under the 3rd call for project proposals in May 2010, but unfortunately it was not approved.

In the framework of ICC it should be tested how cross border cooperation can be organized in a sustainable way in several border regions to strengthen the regions. For this reason instruments of cross-border cooperation should be developed and tested. In particular the application of European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) and the implementation of selected cooperation projects are in the focus of the project.
