Interreg project Crossquality closure event


Maastricht University
Bouillonstraat 1
6211LH Maastricht

  • How to measure the quality of cross-border cooperation: presentation of the Crossquality methodology.
  • What are the results from the pilot application in the programme area of Interreg Euregio Meuse Rhine?
  • Two panels: discussion of the results with experts from Interreg programmes, EU Commission, Interreg project partners and the Crossqulity team.

As a reminder, here some background information on Crossquality:
How good is the cooperation of public sector bodies, companies or citizens in our cross-border region? How can we describe the quality of cross-border networks and entities? And finally: what are precisely the positive effects of an Interreg programme on the different aspects of cooperation and governance across borders?

In 2021 and 2022, the Crossquality project developed a methodology to measure the quality of cross-border cooperation related to Interreg programmes. With this innovative qualitative assessment methodology, it is possible to better assess the effects of Interreg programmes in a specific programme area. One practical result of the project is a handbook for practitioners describing how to apply the assessment.

As a pilot, the team from RWTH Aachen, Hasselt University, University of Liège, Maastricht University and EGTC Euregio Meuse Rhine carried out a first assessment by approaching many Interreg experts in the cross-border territory, conducting interviews, organising workshop and launching a survey.

The results for the Interreg programme Euregio Meuse-Rhine will be presented and discussed during this closure event.
