Dear Visitor,

From 1 August 2007 non profit organisations that are aimed at the successful cooperation of the municipalities, local and regional authorities of two or more member states can be established in Hungary.

The European Union created an opportunity for members to establish EGTCs, bodies with legal personality in 2006 to facilitate the efficient use of Union resources and the success of the already existing or future cooperation.

EGTC is an abbreviation, it stands for European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation. Within the frame of this new instrument cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation can be implemented.

We believe that our homepage provides professional help and useful information to the municipalities and local authorities that seek cooperation.
