The CoR and the AEBR call for more participation of border regions and EGTCs in the Operational Programmes

On 19 November 2013, the Committee of the Regions and the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR) organized jointly a seminar on the issue of the participation of citizens of the border regions in Partnership Agreements and Operational Programmes. The seminar also focused on the specific situation of the European Groupings of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC), which are called on to have a more active role in the next programming period.
The conclusions of this seminar have been sent to the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission, stressing that border regions and EGTCs have to be involved in the preparation of the programming documents and underlining the principles of multi-level governance and partnership, according to Art. 5 of the Common Provisions Regulation and to the European Code of Conduct on Partnership.
