Governance Network of Cross-border Rio Minho 

This project seeks to develop the activity of the EGTC Rio Minho, taking a step further to the support network for the local dynamics of cross-border cooperation created for this territory, and to structure a transversal training network for its governance with the creation and development of a working group technician who will be trained to energize cross-border urban agendas.

It also seeks the promotion of knowledge and information through the revitalization of the Observatory of Cross-border Dynamics of the Rio Minho, the training of its partners in this field and the promotion of collaboration network and alliances.

Five pilot actions will be developed on mobility, culture and social policies that will be applied at the first level of the border.


  •  Reinforce historical cooperation dynamics that the different European projects implemented in the territory have also helped to strenghten through the implementation of different actions.
  • Structure a training network, run the training program and develop cross-border urban agendas, through the dynamism of the socio-economic observatory.
  • Deepen, at an organizacional and efficiency level, the process of cross-border cooperation in the international area of the Rio Minho through the leadership and consolidation of the EGTC Rio Minho.
  • Analyze the evolution of resources to collect information and prepare proposals.
  • Train local agents in cross-border, sustainable mobility and in reducing the use of individual transport.
  • Implement a pilot project on cross-border mobility on demand and another on electric mobility.
  • Create a structure that coordinates cross-border socio-cultural dynamics and gender equality policies.
