Basel-Stadt

The city of Basel is the administrative centre of the Swiss canton of Basel-City. It is located at the centre of an economic space and a coherent cross-border living space. Its conurbation, with approximately 600,000 inhabitants, extends onto three countries (Switzerland, France, Germany). The cross-border conurbation project dates from 1994, with the launching of the Trinational Agglomeration Basel (TAB) project. The TAB association was formed in 2002. In 2006, the political representatives of the conurbation decided to upgrade the structure of the BTC to allow the formation of the Trinational Eurodistrict Basel (TEB). The TEB has elaborated a common strategy for 2006-2020 (Interreg III), and has planned to work on the 2009-2020 strategy (Interreg IVA). website: 

The essential aim of the cross-border conurbation project is to strengthen the role of the central city and of the Trinational Eurodistrict Basel in the network of major European cities while ensuring a genuine quality of life, the principal objectives being expressed in terms of urban development and housing, transport, economic development, environmental protection and a political organisation working to set up an effective cross-border territorial structure.
The Canton of Basel Stadt expects to exchange with the other Project Partners on the improvement of metropolitan governance. In its case, it includes the articulation with the Upper Rhine level of cooperation. As the TEB is on an external border of the European Union, the formation of a European grouping of territorial cooperation is not planned at present.
