Crossing Borders: Linkages between EU policy for territorial cooperation and Nordic cross-border cooperation
Responsible organisation

Abstract [en]

Cooperation across national borders is a means to enhance regional development and growth in border areas. Institutions, authorities and organisations on both sides of the border see that there is much to gain from&nbsp cooperation and, sometimes, that it is even necessary to cooperate. Cross-border cooperation is an important part of Nordic cooperation on regional policy. The Nordic Council of Ministers provides funding for 12 cross-border committees in different parts of the Nordic Countries. EU funding for cross-border and transnational cooperation projects through the European Territorial Cooperation programmes (also called INTERREG) also has a significant impact on Nordic cross-border cooperation. The report was commissioned by the Nordic working group on globalisation and cross-border cooperation to describe and analyse the linkages between EU Cohesion policy focusing in particular on the European Territorial Cooperation Objective (ETC), the Nordic policy for cross-border cooperation and the Nordic cross-border committees. The target groups of the report include readers already familiar with the policy instruments used, both on the EU level and in the Nordic context, to enhance cross-border and territorial cooperation and those that are less familiar with the "world" of cross-border and territorial cooperation.
