European Territorial Cooperation: informing cooperation across borders

EPRC has a broad research interest in territorial development. A core strand of our research focuses on the EU’s INTERREG cross-border, transnational and interregional programmes, with studies undertaken for the European Commission, national governments, INTERACT, ESPON, OECD and programme authorities.

EPRC’s research also covers the increasingly wide range of territorially based policies, programmes and instruments, including, macro-regional strategies,  marine regional cooperation, territorially based instruments, and Arctic Regional Cooperation. A wide range of research projects have been completed covering:

  • cross-country comparative research;
  • programme evaluation;
  • specific aspects of territorial cooperation, such as governance,
  • cooperation in specific thematic/geographic areas, and
  • forward-looking policy analysis.
