About ITEM
We carry out interdisciplinary research in the context of cross-border Euroregional mobility and cooperation issues. Through both small-scale contract research and extensive annual reports (such as the annual cross-border impact assessment), we engage with the issues surrounding the internationalisation of the world and its impact on border regions. Our research revolves around translating scientific knowledge into practical solutions. Together with our partners, we tackle the problems of border regions and generate real impact in society.

Expert team
Our team of experts consists of researchers from different disciplines and organisations, enabling us to offer comprehensive solutions to complex cross-border issues. Our research and advisory services focus on practical challenges, and we work closely with our partners to ensure that our findings are relevant and applicable.

We warmly invite you to explore our website and learn more about our work. Whether you are a researcher, policymaker or community member, we welcome your involvement and collaboration in working towards a better future for border regions and their communities.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.
