INTERREG, Neighbourhood Policy or Macro-regional strategies – learn more about European Territorial Cooperation with the brand-new MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) entirely dedicated to European Territorial Cooperation (ETC)!
Whether you plan to work in the field of ETC or you would like to dive deeper into this topic – this MOOC is made for you!
Commissioned by the European Commission and developed in cooperation with some of the most renowned experts in the field of ETC, this online course is divided into four chapters which will provide you with an exhaustive overview on territorial cooperation in Europe:
The first chapter will guide you through the foundations of territorial cooperation by questioning its origins, its evolution and its theoretical framework since its development after the end of the Second World War.
A second chapter will depict the existing European policies in the field of territorial cooperation: Interreg, Neighbourhood Policy, Macro-regional strategies, etc., with the goal of analysing decision-making procedures, their implementation, their geographical dimensions and their impact.
In the third one, a thematic approach is being proposed. For each of the 5 identified topics (health, spatial planning, environment, culture, mobility), you will be able discover how they have been tackled at the local level, to which cooperation needs they responded and how the different stakeholders intervened and interacted (multi-level-governance).
Finally, a fourth chapter will explain how territorial cooperation is concretely implemented by local stakeholders, which difficulties they encounter and which means and tools were activated in order to overcome them.
Each course is composed of several sequences, which are complementary and contain several videos, thought-provoking learning material, case-studies and stakeholders’ interviews. Experts of ETC from all over Europe, including members of the Transfrontier Euro-Institut network (TEIN), have contributed by sharing their experiences, expertise and analyses.
The course will be provided in English.
