In recent years a bad practice of cross-border project development and implementation has taken root in Central Europe. Local actors use cross-border cooperation programmes for satisfying their own, local development needs. Consequently, sustainable, long-term institutionalised and strategic cooperation cannot be developed. The parties meet in an ad-hoc way for the sake of a single project. Following the the project implementation the partners deal with maintaining only their own project package, the joint elements are fading out.
The mission of CESCI is to transform this bad practice into a good one, that of strategically based long-term forms of cooperation. Integrated projects can ensure the joint development of the projects and the long-term sustainability of the results thereof.
Institutionalised cooperation might guarantee a strategic approach in planning and financing.
