The Pannon EGTC (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation), seated in the city of Pécs, Hungary, was established on 31 August, 2010 with the participation of Slovenian and Hungarian partners. The aim of the cooperation is a well tuned development of the south-western border area. Registration at the Court of Registration is expected in January, 2012.
The goal of this non-profit organisation is to establish a successful cooperation among the municipalities of two or more countries and among the local and regional authorities of the area. The organization's members are 57 local governments and 3 counties from Croatia, Slovenia and Hungary and 2 regionally significant organizations: the University of Pécs and Duna-Dráva National Park.
