Potentials of Cross-border Public Services for Hungarian and neighbouring border regions




12 November 2019


Freedom of movement of EU citizens across borders in Europe is a cornerstone of the EU. People cross national borders on a daily basis for education, work or leisure. At the same time, border regions are often among the less advanced regions in their national context. Supporting cross-border flows is one means to improve border regions' perspectives. Public authorities may seek to cooperate across national borders for their public service provision to address some typical challenges of border regions. Stakeholders implementing Interreg can seek to support public authorities in this approach.

The ESPON targeted analysis on Cross-border Public Services (CPS) aimed to improve delivery practices of CPS in European border regions and to increase awareness about the added value of CPS provision. This webinar will provide insights into the study’s findings with a focus on Hungarian and neighbouring border regions. Experiences from other central European border areas will also be illustrated to highlight the variety of feasible CPS. Insights will be given from different angles that may be of interest for local and regional public authorities, providers of public services, EU programme authorities etc. Findings of the study will be complemented by various insights from CESCI, highlighting the specifics for Hungarian and neighbouring stakeholders.
