Reasons for Success in overcoming Obstacles
1. Bilateral agreements establish the necessary legal framework for additional agreements at regional and local levels on the practical, technical and operational issues.
2. Defining specific objectives when drafting cooperation agreements.
3. Personal knowledge and confidence between Government Officials can create an environment beneficial to cross-border cooperation.
Good Practices in identifying and removing Obstacles
1. Keeping bilateral agreements general but with a clear and precise objective (e.g. leaving room for adapting them to the local and practical/operational levels).
2. Identify obstacles at all relevant sectoral authorities through a national case study.
3. “Vækstcentret” (Growth centre) supporting project partners and new applicants drawing up an application and general information on how to access funds for co-financing projects.
4. The establishment of Region Sønderjylland Schleswig (RSS) which is providing information services for cross-border job-seekers and workers.
Good Practices in identifying Cross-border territory as a spatial planning unit
Sectorial cooperation based on EU funded projects.
Reasons for Obstacles Persistence
1. Decision making process too dependent on cooperation (e.g. Fehmarnbelt tunnel).
2. National authorities do not apply results obtained in CBC project in national legislation (e.g. diplomas and certificate recognition).
3. Lack of local needs priority in national political agendas.
4. Burocracy complexity.
5. Difficulties in ensuring international quality control of CBC activities (e.g. EUROCORES).
6. Health and Social Insurance systems imbalances (e.g. German Health Care Insurance does not support payment of treatment and Health Care in Denmark).
7. Reources not proportionate to envisaged goals of CBC.
Obstacles to be removed by Unilateral Action (State/Regional)
Harmonisation of Denmark legislation with EU law to improve access to DK in case of a larger emergency (e.g. discrepancies between tax regulation and residence permit; establishment of OSOCC should be more coherent with EU standards).
Obstacles to be removed by coordination between State and Regional Actors
1. The national implementation of EU regulations causes an unjustified complexity and difference in the implementation crossing borders.
2. Harmonisation of educational systems structural adaption of curriculum for certain professions. Validation of certain degrees and diplomas.
3. In case of emergency operational areas: checklists both for national use as well as for the Liaison Officer appointed to be the contact to foreign teams.
Obstacles to be removed by International Cooperation
Interreg regulations must be simplified to reduce the administrative burdens and develop a better implementation structure for the EU cohesion policy.
