In this study, ÖIR, t33 and Spatial Foresight analysed the impact of Brexit on regions and cities. It focused on the (potential) effects of the EU-UK Trade Cooperation Agreement which entered into force in 2021. Key activities of the study included an EU-27 analysis of regional exposure to Brexit along key affected economic sectors and eight case studies on regional impacts and mitigating measures.
ÖIR itself conducted three case studies to in-depth analyse regional impacts. The case studies were based on expert interviews with public officials and document and data analyses. This analysis covered Flanders (Belgium), Normandy (France), and Lubelskie (Poland).
