The research project "Potential for transnational and cross-border partnerships through the use of the instrument of the EGTC (European Grouping for Territorial Cooperation)" examined possible applications and limitations of that instrument. So far, there is no EGTC based in Germany. However, stakeholders are increasingly interested.
With different guidelines on the formation of an EGTC for transnational and cross-border cooperation, these actors should be informed on the advantages and potential disadvantages. Moreover, they should receive a neutral decision support tool. The guidelines were discussed with practitioners and scientists and considered well-founded and very useful.
The present guideline aimed primarily at German stakeholders of transnational cooperation. Due to the great interest beyond Germany, it has been translated into English. A German version is also available.
