Mission Opérationelle Transfrontalière
Established: In April 1997 the CIADT (Interministerial Territorial Planning and Development Committee of the French Government) established MOT (Transfrontier Operational Mission).
MOT was created by the French state which became aware of the major issues of cross-border cooperation, assessed the needs of project leaders in terms of operational assistance and noted the non-optimum utilisation of INTERREG funds. MOT is an interministerial structure supervised by the DATAR (Delegation for Territorial Planning and Regional Attractiveness), associated with five candidate pilot sites for experimentation.
The principal objective of MOT is to facilitate the emergence and the execution of structuring cross-border projects at local level, by favouring territorial integration on either side of the borders. Its dual legitimacy (interministerial and as an association) enables it to encourage ongoing dialogue between national and community authorities and local project leaders. It plays its role in three areas: operational assistance, networking and help with the definition of overall strategies.
