Revision of the Strategy of Cross-border Rio Minho 2030

This project tries to adapt the ‘Strategy of Cross-border Minho River 2030’ approved in 2019 within the framework of the SMART_MINO project to the new post Covid-19 context.

This need for adaptation is due to two main circumstances: (i) the approval of the regulations and financial frameworks for the period 2021-2027 in their operational version; and (ii) the whole new scenario opened up by the outbreak of Covid-19 and its management, which, for the Spanish-Portuguese border as a whole, gave rise to a diversity of new strategic documents such as the ‘Common Border Development Spain-Portugal’ (2020) or, in the case of Galicia-North Portugal, it includes, among others, a new PIC (2021).


  • Revise and adapt the ‘Strategy of Cross-border Minho River 2030’. This adaptation is vital for the future of territory covered by the Rio Minho EGTC and involves an improvement in the governance of cross-border cooperation through an adapted strategic process that will be led by the EGTC itself.
  • Align the Strategy in relation to key documents produced at community level such as EU Regulations 2021/1059 and 2021/1060 or the ‘Territorial Agenda 2030’ approved in 2021, or in relation to those produced specifically for the entire Spanish cross-border area-Portuguese and the Euro regional area of Galicia-North of Portugal.
  • Elaborate a new prospective diagnosis that allows the foundation of an adapted Strategy for the territory of the Cross-border Rio Minho and that leads to the preparation of a final action plan of a proactive and executive nature.
