AEBR

The Association of European Border Regions (AEBR) was founded in 1971 of which the East Border Region is a member. It acts for the benefit of all European border and cross border regions. The aims of the AEBR are;

  • to make their particular problems, opportunities, tasks and projects intelligible;
  • to represent their overall interests to national and international parliaments, organs, authorities and institutions; 
  • to initiate, support and co-ordinate their co-operation throughout Europe (creation of a network); 
  • to exchange know-how and information in order to formulate and co-ordinate common interests on the basis of the various cross-border problems and opportunities, and to offer adequate solutions.


The objectives of the AEBR are;

  • to implement programmes and projects, to apply for funds and to receive and to dispose of them;
  • to organise events that deal with cross-border problems; 
  • to help to solve cross-border problems and to support special activities; 
  • to prepare and implement common campaigns within the networks; 
  • to inform European political bodies and the public about cross-border issues.


East Border Region Ltd was delighted to host the Association's Annual Conference from 21st-23rd October 2010 in Dundalk/Newry. The conference was a tremendous success with over 250 delegates from all corners of Europe visiting our Region.
