b-solutions is 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".
b-solutions consists of four calls for proposals, one opened in early 2018, one in early 2019. Two more calls will be opened in 2020 to identify further obstacles to cross-border cooperation.
Public authorities of border administrations have the chance to submit information about a legal or administrative obstacle they face when implementing projects in a border area. Successful candidates are assigned support from the European Commission to remove the difficulties which hinder cooperation with the neighbouring country.
