Cross-Border Cooperation, known as Interreg A, is part of the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI), whose main objective is to support progress towards “an area of shared prosperity and good neighbourliness” between EU Member States and their neighbours. CBC puts the focus on equal cooperation between NUTS III regions from at least two different Member States lying directly on the borders or adjacent to them. It aims to tackle common challenges identified jointly in the border regions and to exploit the untapped growth potential in border areas, while enhancing the cooperation process for the purposes of the overall harmonious development of the Union.Assessment and detailed mapping in the 6 pilot countries and regions

The webinar explored the similarities between the two initiatives, enhancing the common interest and advantages for local communities and how they can benefit from valorising heritage and culture. The event's main objective was to identify synergies and discuss future collaborations.
