Call for Tenders for Targeted Analysis “Territorial Impact Assessment for Cross-Border Cooperation”

The service shall develop a step-by-step methodology describing how to determine the ex-post impact of any cross-border cooperation (CBC) programme on the territorial development of the border regions. A test of the methodology shall also be performed in the stakeholder territories by providing evidence on how the territorial impact assessment of cross border cooperation programmes works in practice. Such an assessment would address the need to better evaluate the use of EU funds for cross border cooperation, to provide practitioners and policy makers with evidence on the impact of these programmes, and to foster policy learning and more effective and targeted programmes in the future.

The main outcome of this activity should be a methodology specifically tailored to assess ex-post territorial impacts of CBC programmes.
