Being the only European regional organisation that specifically deals with cross-border co-operation, AEBR has gained an invaluable know-how during the past decades. AEBR provides advice to all European border and cross-border regions, whether or not members of the EU
- on general questions relating to cross-border co-operation,
- on developing joint cross-border programmes, structures and projects,
- on specific areas of co-operation, such as spatial development, regional policy, economic issues, transport, tourism, co-operation of SMEs, research and innovation, social issues, health, media, cultural aspects, etc.
Furthermore, AEBR acts as a service platform, thus facilitating the exchange of know-how all across Europe.
Advice and other services are provided within the framework of EU Programmes and also apart from them.
