The Centre for Cross Border Studies is a member of the Transfrontier Euro-Institute Network (TEIN).
Formed in 2010, the TEIN brings together 19 partners from 9 border regions in Europe. It consists of universities, research institutes and training centres which are dedicated to the practical business of cross-border cooperation in Europe. Home to a third of the EU’s population, border regions represent 40% of the EU territory and the development of these areas is essential for their competitiveness.
TEIN is led by the Euro-Institut, created in 1993 in Kehl/Strasbourg on the French/German/Swiss border with the aim of facilitating cross-border cooperation. All members have subscribed to a common charter to ensure the organization of the network and the quality of its output. Because of this, TEIN is able to measure the need for capacity building in cross-border cooperation throughout Europe.
Members’ work involves cross-border training and facilitation, managing cross-border projects, researching on cross-border issues, and providing mentoring, training and advice for cross-border actors. In this respect, TEIN can be seen as representing a genuinely bottom-up approach. TEIN has been funded by the EU Leonardo da Vinci Programme (Leonardo Partnership 2010-2012 and Leonardo Transfer of Innovation 2012-2014).
