In the upcoming period, a team of ITEM researchers and experts will direct their attention to the dossiers.
Research activities of the Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility / ITEM focus on transnational and cross-border issues. The research into the border effects of existing and future legislation, policy and enforcement via the annual ITEM Cross-border Impact Assessment is one of its core activities.
The annual Cross-border Impact Assessment kicks off with a stakeholder consultation. The stakeholder consultation is the important first step in ITEM’s annual impact assessment. All dossier suggestions are evaluated by ITEM in light of their topicality, relation to ITEM’s research focus and frequency of the issue. This survey allows stakeholders to put forward issues regarding legislation, policy and enforcement on the European, national and regional level.
Therefore, knowledge and practice meet in ITEM’s Cross-border Impact Assessment. In 2016 and 2017 this convergence has resulted in the successful first two Cross-border Impact Assessments. The results of the earlier assessments can be consulted via this link.
