Beyond Borders: Breakfast Debate. «Border Regions in Post-2027 Cohesion Policy». EVENT DATE: Thu, 09/11/2023 – 10:00 – Thu, 09/11/2023 – 11:00. REGISTER NOW
Cohesion policy, the second most significant source of investment in the European Union’s budget, aims to correct imbalances between countries and regions by delivering targeted funding support to the regions of the European Union.
Regardless of the above, border regions still face many obstacles compared to other regions in the EU, often because the existence of a border limits the natural possibilities of growth of a territory; because legal and administrative differences exist between one border region and its neighbouring one, creating obstacles to growth, to interaction. For this reason, they require more attention and targeted support. Therefore, border regions should be at the epicentre of Cohesion Policy efforts to foster growth and European integration.
At the same time, many border regions tackle the aforementioned obstacles with a robust set of measures and actions to alleviate existing challenges and enhance the potential of territorial assets in border regions. This debate is set to explore these in relation to the post-2027 Cohesion Policy perspective.
