Abstract

This paper is part of the results of the ex-post evaluation of INTERREG III which was carried out on behalf of the European Commission during 2008 to 2010. One of the tasks was to assess the impact of INTERREG III on a harmonious regional development and integration throughout Europe. This paper is focussed on INTERREG-Strand A (cross-border co-operation). The empirical analysis, based on factor with subsequent regression analysis, suggests that predominantly experimental project types and history of co-operation matter for EU cross-border economic integration, while the strength of co-operation in the cross-border regional development programmes seems not to matter at all.
