May 27, 2015 | News

(27 May 2015) – In order to illustrate the role of cross-border cooperation and the impact of the projects in the daily life of the inhabitants, the MOT (Mission opérationnelle transfrontalière) has published a package of project sheets on practical topics such as employment, transport, the environment, health, education and culture.

With a view to its presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2015, the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg has placed the clearing of obstacles to cross-border cooperation at the centre of its priorities.

On the basis of the responses to a questionnaire sent to entities involved in cross-border cooperation throughout Europe, the MOT produced an analysis of the legal obstacles preventing or threatening the implementation of cross-border projects, along with potential solutions that might involve the introduction of a new European legal instrument.
