AEBR announces the launch of the EU pilot initiative “b-solutions”. The Call for Proposals is now open until 30th April 2018. :


Since 22 December 2017 AEBR has been managing the EU pilot initiative “b-solutions”, which is a 2-year pilot project financed by the EU budget and promoted by the European Commission’s DG REGIO as one of the actions proposed in the referred Communication “Boosting Growth and Cohesion in EU Border Regions”. The general objective of b-solutions is to identify and promote sustainable methods of resolving border obstacles of a legal and/or administrative nature along EU internal land borders.

The start of B-solutions was announced on 16 January 2018 in Copenhagen and a Call for Proposals was launched on 1 February 2018 in Bratislava in the framework of the workshops about “Boosting Growth and Cohesion in EU Border Regions. The Call for Proposals of pilots projects to identify possible solutions to cross-border legal and administrative obstacles at EU internal land borders is officially open until 30 April 2018, 14h00 CET.

More information can be found in the b-solutions website:

Public authorities should seize the opportunity offered by b-solutions to test effective ways —in the form of pilot actions— of overcoming border obstacles of a legal and/or administrative nature along EU internal land borders (including also the neighbouring EFTA countries) that can be replicable in other contexts. Each of these pilot actions must focus on one of the topics highlighted in the Communication and accompanying Staff Working Document, i.e. (1) employment, (2) health, (3) transport, (4) multi-lingualism and (5) institutional cooperation. Each of these projects (actions) will have the objective of exploring one specific solution for one specific problem in one specific border. Projects will be implemented during a maximum period of 15 months.
