ITEM supports and promotes - from science - the euregional and transnational functioning of society. In order for society to use ITEM's research, a cross-border portal was launched on September 24th during a GIPTOGETHER-meeting of crossborder informationpoints (GIP's) in Eupen.

ITEM's cross-border portal - - has a dual function of housing a knowledge base on cross-border issues and of housing the ITEM casuistry (real life cases).

A new home for the ITEM casuistry (real life cases): Do you experience problems that impede your mobility across borders or which hamper cross-border cooperation, for example in the area of social security, access to education, migration legislation or taxation?  Do these problems need to be looked at from a scientific point of view? Submit your real life cases via

If you are interested in previous analyses conducted by ITEM you can find anonymised cases in the case database as part of the ITEM knowledge base.

The ITEM knowledge base features high quality and unique content on diploma recognition, pensions, social security and taxation seen in cross-border perspective.
