The European Commission has just launched a new platform to share good practices for boosting growth in EU border regions and create a professional network of EU border stakeholders. This European professional platform is part of the 10 measures proposed by the European Commission’s Communication on how to overcome hurdles and obstacles to improve cross-border cooperation, published in September 2017 (read Euromontana’s article here).
The professional network is opened to border stakeholders who want to discuss and present border issues and solutions on egovernment, health, multilingualism, transport, employment, institutional matters and information services. The key objective of the network will be to create a stronger border community at European level.
The Border Focal Point, composed of Commission experts in cross-border issues, will also use this platform to engage fully with border stakeholders.
