The MOT: a unique organisation
The Mission Opérationnelle Transfrontalière, created in 1997, is both an association and a French inter-ministerial organisation, with the main objective of facilitating cross-border projects. Its missions are:
- assisting project leaders (project development, legal structures, studies, etc.)
- networking stakeholders and experience
- promoting the interests of cross-border territories
To date, the MOT has concentrated its work on local cross-border cooperation and assistance in the definition of policies regarding cross-border territories.
