The aim of the Collaboration operation is to improve access to services so as to improve the quality of life for those living in the eligible area.  

Following consultation with member Local Authorities and other key stakeholders EBR projects developed under the Collaboration theme are related to resourcing the wider work of EBR Ltd., addressing the lack of a proper framework for cross border spatial and other planning in EBR. Key components of this Operation also relate to the environment, renewable energy and biodiversity.


This Operation, therefore, has two key themes

  • investing  in the Regional Capacity for cross border development
  • the Environment (projects detailed under the environment tab).

This Operation will contribute to the balanced and sustainable development of the cross border region by supporting the wider work of EBR Ltd. in relation to the development of the cross border region, strengthening the regional capacity for cross border cooperation by developing a spatial planning framework for the cross border region, and by protecting the Region's biodiversity and encouraging the use of sustainable energy sources.
