Leonardo Partnership Meetings 2010-2012

For two years, the partners have sought to get to know each other better, to exchange information on their practices and to learn from each other.

Thus, the members of the network have developed “identity sheets” specifying their activities in terms of training, support and research in cross-border cooperation.

Because each territory has its own specificities and we have taken into account these differences in the network, the members have also produced “presentation sheets” of the territories in which they are active.

These documents have been compiled for the general public on the network’s website (

In terms of communication, the network has also adopted a logo and a presentation brochure.

The results of this first stage of work were presented in Brussels at a conference held on 10 July at the Baden-Württemberg representation office, which was designed in collaboration with the MOT (Mission Opérationnelle Transfrontalière) and the AEBR (Association of Border Regions of Europe). 120 participants were able to discuss issues related to the future of territorial cooperation in Europe and the role of professionalization of actors in this context. It was on this occasion that the TEIN Charter was signed by the members of the network.
