b-solutions’ third call for proposals: the full list of selected cases

Following the b-solutions‘ third call for proposals’ closing, AEBR and the EU Commission’s DG REGIO have performed the quality assessment of the 27 applications received. Among them, they have selected 23 advice cases addressing legal and administrative obstacles that hamper the cross-border cooperation along the EU and EFTA internal land borders.

The 23 selected cases will receive the support of legal experts with knowledge of cross-border instances whom will structure the definition of the obstacles identified in a clear and systematic way and will elaborate possible solutions together with roadmaps to implement them.

All the selected cases will be advised within the implementation period envisaged by the third call for proposals of b-solutions, namely by the end of January 2021.

To continue raising awareness and mutual learning among the cross-border stakeholders, the regional, national and European institutions, in conclusion of the analyses collected within the present and the next call for proposals, a second compendium of the reports elaborated by the experts will be produced by AEBR in cooperation with the European Commission.

Below, is the full list of successful cases – short descriptions of all of them will be soon available on the b-solutions’ website and on the EU Commission’ s platform “Boosting EU border regions“.
