European Groupings for Territorial Cooperation (EGTC)
European Groupings for Territorial Cooperation aim to facilitate and promote cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation in the EU. Their tasks include the implementation of programmes that are being co-financed by the EU or any other European cross-border cooperation project.
As legal entities, EGTCs bring together authorities from various Member States. Their members may include EU Member States themselves, regional or local authorities, associations or any other public body. EGTCs must contain members from at least two EU Member States.
