In April 2010, six urban networks gathered in Santiago de Compostela, have created the CONFERENCE OF EUROPEAN CROSS-BORDER AND INTERREGIONAL CITY NETWORKS – CECICN. CECICN is composed of cross –border and interregional city networks which develop cooperation actions between cities and other territories, as part of its general or specific work. Actually, the CECICN is a platform which groups the networks of cities from the Atlantic, Baltic, Mediterranean, Adriatic, Iberian and MOT. The network is chaired by Per BOdker Andersen (president of the Union of Baltic Cities) and Carlos Negreira, President of the CAAC is the Vice-President. Xoam Mao (RIET) is the Secretary-General and Jean Perony (MOT) is the Director-General.


The member networks consider as a must that both the European Union and the European Commission promote a second generation cross-border cooperation that takes into account the major achievements of the cross-border cooperation processes boosted by the European Commission during the last fifteen years. Moreover, this second generation cross-border cooperation would define and undertake a new political initiative for the development of border and peripheral territories starting from 2014, as an instrument for the economic development of these territories.
