The Association of European Border Regions (AEBR) and the European Commission's DG REGIO are happy to announce that 2021 will start with a new possibility for public bodies and cross-border structures to adress obstacles that prevent or limit cross-border cooperation.
On the 15 January 2021, a fourth call for proposals under the initiative b-solutions will be opened to selected 27 more obstacles of a legal or administrative nature arising along the EU and EFTA internal land borders.
The call will remain open until the 11 March 2021.
Following the scheme already applied in the course of the second and the third calls for proposals, the successful applicants will receive technical and specialised support by legal experts who will identify the root causes of the obstacles and will propose tailor-made solutions to overcome them.
The overall implementation period of cases selected under this call will go from April 2021 up to end of June 2021.
Stay tuned to receive more information on the coming call and visit the b-solutions' website to discover more on the initiative and on the obstacles selected within the past calls!
Finally, if you are an expert with legal background and sound knowledge of cross-border cooperation matters, we encourage you to apply to our "call for expression of interest" to becoming part of our pool and advising the next obstacles!
