Launch of ‘TIA for Cross-Border Cooperation‘

On the 23rd of May 2018 the project ‘Territorial Impact Assessment for Cross-Border Cooperation‘ started with a meeting in Kleve at the Border of Germany and the Netherlands. The project which was tendered by the ESPON ‘European Grouping on Territorial Cooperation’ (EGTC) will be realised by OIR together with blue!, M&E Factory, the University of Maastricht, Nordregio, Red2Red, University College Dublin and the University of Liverpool and runs for 12 months.
The project aims at developing a methodology to better asses the territorial impact of Cross Border Cooperation (CBC) programmes. This is achieved by developing a step-by-step methodology and handbook for TIA of CBC programmes. This methodology is then applied in five case studies in close cooperation with stakeholders from the respective programmes.
