b-solutions is an initiative promoted by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) and managed by the Association of European Border Regions (AEBR) as one of the actions proposed in the Communication "Boosting growth and cohesion in EU border regions".
In 2022, b-solutions 2.0: Solving Cross-Border Obstacles was launched, extending the action.
With b-solutions, we aim to solve obstacles to cross-border cooperation.
Addressing public authorities of border administrations and actors of cross-border cooperation, the b-solutions initiative is a platform to inform about a legal or administrative obstacles which hinder cooperation across borders. Successful candidates are selected through regular calls for proposals, and receive support from the European Commission to remove the difficulties which hinder cooperation with the neighbouring country.
