Launching ITEM's cross border portal in September
The Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility / 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 will be launched in September 2018.
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).
The ITEM knowledge base features high quality and unique content on diploma recognition, pensions, social security and taxation seen in cross-border perspective.
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? Then submit your case for analysis by ITEM’s researchers through the ITEM cross-border portal! The submission form can be found on the right hand side of your screen. 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.
