On 31 January, CESCI participated as an expert at the professional meeting organised by the DG Regio and the AEBR in Brussels targeting the B-Solutions programme dealing with cross-border legal obstacles. The project owners of the 10 projects selected in the first round of the programme presented the obstacles identified by themselves, as well as their proposals on how to abolish the concerned obstacles. Mr Dirk Peters (DG Regio) introduced the draft ECBM (European Cross-Border Mechanism) Regulation, in the perspective of which the experts had to assess the presented projects.
