The common Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino in Brussels was initiated on the basis of an agreement between the governors of the three regions in 1995. They gave birth to the first cross-border EU liaison office in Brussels.
The common Representation is an excellent example of how three neighboring regions from two different countries may join forces to act together on a European level.
The three regions, united from 1363 until the end of the First World War in the County of Tyrol, they share a significant common historical and cultural heritage. By virtue of this historical and cultural heritage, by the geographical proximity and homogeneous landscape, which all necessarily leads to a convergence of interests on a European level, the three regions have common priorities in various areas.
Since 2005, the common Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino has had its common office close to the European Institutions, in particular to the European Parliament, the Council of the European Union, the European Commission and the Committee of the Regions.
