Border Development Zone project launched

The Centre for Cross Border Studies (CCBS) and the International  Centre for Local and Regional  Development (ICLRD) today launched their new project: ‘Towards a Border Development Zone’.

This innovative research and conference project will explore the potential of a joint economic development approach across the whole Irish and Northern Irish cross-border region, from Derry to Dundalk, and from Donegal to Down, including all the towns and counties in between. In doing this it will build on the work of the three existing local authority-based cross-border networks: EBR, ICBAN and NWRCBG.

The project is part-financed by the European Union’s INTERREG IVA programme managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.
