The Centre for Cross Border Studies, working as part of the Europe-wide PAT-TEIN project, has launched a new toolkit designed for cross-border project managers.
The Intercultural/Cross-Border Project Management Toolkit in the Irish Cross-Border Territory aims to equip those involved in the management of cross-border or transnational projects with the skills and knowledge needed for the successful implementation of cross-border interventions. It is set within a context of cross-border cooperation on the island of Ireland that has been developing in the light of two principal sets of policy imperatives:
- EU Territorial Cohesion Policy, EU Territorial Cooperation and other Structural Funding, particularly the PEACE Programmes; and
- The commitment to cross-border cooperation made in Strand II of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement.
The Intercultural/Cross-Border Project Management Toolkit is a recognition that successful cross-border cooperation is not based on good will alone: it needs those who are involved in it to have a set of specific skills and approaches. These are what this Toolkit provides.
