NEW ESF REGULATION ARTICLES 9 & 10 – SOCIAL INNOVATION & TNC Article 10 TRANSNATIONAL COOPERATION 1. Member States shall support transnational cooperation with the aim of promoting mutual learning and thereby increasing the effectiveness of policies supported by the ESF. Transnational cooperation shall involve partners from at least two Member States. 2. Member States may select themes for transnational co-operation from a list proposed by the Commission and endorsed by the ESF Committee. 3. The Commission shall facilitate transnational cooperation on the themes referred to in paragraph 2 through mutual learning and coordinated or joint action. In particular, the Commission shall operate an EU-level platform to facilitate the exchange of experience, capacity building and networking, as well as dissemination of the relevant outcomes. In addition, the Commission shall develop a coordinated implementation framework, including common eligibility criteria, types and timing of actions, and common methodological approaches for monitoring and evaluation, with a view to facilitating transnational cooperation.

RECOMMENDATIONS BSN-ESF A stronger social dimension in the EUSBSR Increased and improved transnational cooperation in the ESF More efficient alignment of funding, linked to the EUSBSR
ESF 2014 – 2020 SWEDEN Apply the common framework approach for the implementation of transnational cooperation, but also allow for transnational cooperation in other ways; promote a qualitative use of transnational cooperation in the ESF; concentrate transnational cooperation to a limited number of priority areas / themes of the Operational Programme (OP) and / or special calls for proposals in strategically selected fields of intervention;
ESF 2014 – 2020 SWEDEN give the transnational cooperation with the Member States in the Baltic region particular priority in the Operational Programme in order to support the implementation of EUSBSR; consolidate and develop the network BSN ESF and eventually establish an arena for joint analysis, research and development in the region, linked to the Member States' transnational use of ESF (and flanking programs) in relation to EUSBSR.
EUROPEAN ADDED VALUE “Not only does transnational co-operation generate added value in the form of better and more sustainable project results, it also contributes towards shaping a European perspective and way of thinking – a true European mindset. Transnational co-operation facilitates the development of innovative ideas, concepts, methods and policies which will contribute to realizing the European Union’s overarching strategy for the future Europe, EU 2020.”
