Territorial cooperation in the European Union is about reducing disparities between regions, reinforcing cohesion and encouraging optimal economic development.

Three policy instruments of the European Union support territorial cooperation

Currently there are 93 cooperation programmes which provide the framework and funding for local and regional institutions, universities, companies and research institutes to carry out cooperation projects. By pooling together resources, exchanging knowledge and sharing good practices, cooperation projects improve the day to day lives of people throughout Europe and beyond.
