A position paper to strengthen cross-border cooperation between universities located in border regions

The efforts of MOT's working group "Metropolitan cooperation" have resulted in a position paper and an open call made by the MOT and the CPU (French Conference of University Presidents) for strengthening cross-border cooperation between universities.

Download the Contribution of the MOT and the CPU to the definition of the next European policy on higher education and research.

On the eve of France’s Presidency of the European Union, the goal is to gain recognition for the importance of university cross-border cooperation in developing cross-border territories and building a Europe of education and innovation. The process is taking place in the context of the preparation of the 2021-2027 EU programming period, and the new Interreg, Horizon Europe and Erasmus+ programmes.

The position paper proposes recognising the potential of cooperation between universities in cross-border territories, supporting their eligibility for the European Universities initiative of the Erasmus+ programme, encouraging the development of cross-border Smart Specialisation Strategies, and pursuing the Bologna Process (harmonisation of academic calendars, improving polices for supporting the mobility of students and researchers, and mutual recognition of qualifications).
The MOT and the CPU invite higher education and training institutions, border community authorities, and cross-border bodies to support this initiative by joining the first signatories.
