Have you ever tried to work, venture, learn, settle down, or buy a house or a car on the other side of the border? Many people live their everyday lives with a knowledge about the proximity of the border, along with all the difficulties originating from this situation. We founded our association in 2009 with the aim to make their lives easier by enhancing the permeability of borders and by removing barriers created by them.
During our work, we apply the latest scientific results. Based on these results we create cross-border strategic plans and programmes which serve as basis for concrete sustainable developments. Moreover, it is our important mission to play certain intermediary role between local, national and EU level institutions in order to adopt provisions at upper levels which are comprehensible also at local level and are to the interests of local people.
CESCI aims to create as many relations as possible between people living on each side of the border, to help removing the barriers hindering cooperation in order to not only make everyday life easier but also contribute to bring a mutual understanding and rapprochement among the people living in Central Europe.
The Central European Service for Cross-border Initiatives, founded in 2009, celebrates its 10 years of operation next year. The event will be celebrated on April 25-26, 2019 with a two-day conference. Details will be published on our website soon.//2018.12.12.
