Study on organisational aspects of cross-border INTERREG programmes – Legal aspects and partnerships – A TOOL for better use of the European Regional Development Fund


This study aims at giving elements for reflection for the preparation of the new programming period 2007-2013 in terms of partnership organisation and legal arrangements. With a focus on the analysis of organisation models and legal arrangements of the INTERREG IIIA programmes, the study presents statistical data and key information for the understanding and the decision-making procedure relevant to the new programming period.

The study articulates a message that the importance is to coordinate between partners and agree on the repartition of tasks, and especially that of responsibilities, through the signing of a convention and/or memoranda of understanding and to set-up joint management structure.
