Area of CBC activity Labour market
Sector of CBC activity Cross-border mobility
Please, briefly describe the CBC activity you wanted to pursue Grenznetz is a cooperation network of the Border Information Centers (BICs) of five cross-border regions. These border regions are:

  1. EUREGIO (D-NL),
  2. Euregio Maas Rijn (D-NL),
  3. Oberrheinkonferenz (D-F-CH),
  4. Region Sønderjylland-Schleswig (DK-D),
  5. Saarlolux (D-F-BE-LUX).

As a response to the different requirements of national systems concerning for example social security, taxes and pensions, its task is to jointly analyse judicial and legal problems in the field of the cross-border labour market and to offer possible solutions to the responsible institutions. In this way, job-related mobility in border areas and thus the economic integration process in Europe is fostered. Grenznetz was founded in 2009 within –and is still being coordinated by- the “TaskForceNet” project (see www.taskforcenet.eu).
