Lead partner: Mission Opérationnelle Transfrontalière (MOT)
This project was conducted between August 2011 and November 2012 in two major reform contexts: the construction of the framework of the 2014-2020 European cohesion policy, and the definition in France of a national cross-border policy.
In this context, the MOT has received a grant from the technical assistance programme EUROP'ACT in order to draft a methodological guide whose aim was to improve the coordination between cohesion policy, governance systems and cross-border territorial projects.
- Offer an overview of the monitoring systems on cross-border cooperation at all levels and their impact on the development, implementation and sustainability of cooperation projects
- Identify and analyse the weaknesses and bottlenecks of the system as a whole
- Highlight the factors of improvement of this system
- Prepare recommendations meant to streamline and improve the operational framework.
Local authorities, government departments, European institutions and programmes and, more widely, all stakeholders in cross-border cooperation.
