Be part of this year’s European Cooperation Day!

European Territorial Cooperation is a tool of the European Union that brings people together, across borders, in order to solve common or similar issues that cannot be easily managed within a single country. By pulling together knowledge and resources, European Territorial Cooperation helps strengthen administration, transportation, healthcare, education and so much more.
