Cross-border obstacles between EU Member States and Enlargement Countries
Cross-border obstacles hinder cross-border activities of citizens and businesses, within the EU but also with neighbouring countries. Spatial Foresight, in cooperation with t33 and EureConsult, has been awarded a DG REGIO study that looks into these obstacles at EU external borders neighbouring enlargement countries. It will thus have a strong geographical focus on Southeastern Europe. Apart from developing a comprehensive review of these obstacles the study will provide orientation on how to address those that matter most in future IPA-CBC programmes. For this purpose the project team will carry out seveal case studies, provide insights to successful practices overcoming obstacles and provide recommendations for the Member States involved in IPA-CBC programmes.
