Topic description
Scope:Municipalities and associations working together on a common theme in a long-term perspective may wish to develop networks of towns to make their cooperation more sustainable. Networking between municipalities on issues of common interest appears to be an important means for enabling the exchange of good practices.

Twinning is a strong link that binds municipalities; therefore, the potential of the networks created by a series of town twinning links should be used for developing thematic and long-lasting cooperation between towns. The European Commission supports the development of such networks, which are important for ensuring structured, intense and multifaceted cooperation, therefore contributing to maximising the impact of the Programme.

Networks of Towns are expected to:

- Integrate a range of activities around the subject(s) of common interest to be addressed in the context of the Programme’s objectives or policy priorities;

- Mobilise citizens across the Europe;

- To deepen and intensify the cooperation of towns and municipalities and offer them the possibility to debate in a long term perspective, to develop sustainable networks and to outline their long-term vision for the future of European integration.
