Transfrontier Euro-Institut Network – TEIN: The answer to the need for capacity building for an efficient cross-border cooperation

8 October 2014 – This workshop presented good practices in CBC capacity building in six EU border regions to identify the challenges that constrain effective cross-border cooperation in public and civil society organisations. CB territories (40% of EU territory; 30% of the EU population) represent key areas within the EU; border regions are often described as laboratories for integration. However, obstacles still exist due to a lack of knowledge of the ‘other’ and a lack of appropriate methodologies for intercultural work. TEIN, representing very different types of borders, proposes a genuinely new approach: it facilitates CBC through capacity building and therefore provides practical solutions to the problems faced by CB regions and Europe.
