The Rio Minho EGTC presents the Transboundary Dynamics Observatory – ODT –
It is an Observatory that was created to be useful to all people interested in the dynamics shared by the border municipalities of the River Minho, as it offers statistical, documentary and research work on the territory.
The configuration and implementation of the Rio Minho ODT must be interpreted in the light of the logic of an integrated instrument for the socio-economic knowledge of the territory constituted by twenty-six Galician and Portuguese municipalities. This knowledge must be oriented towards being useful in terms of information, dissemination and decision-making for all people interested in the dynamics shared by this common territory.
The Rio Minho ODT is an initiative of the Rio Minho EGTC, an institution integrated in the community logic, based on an EU territory. The mobility of people and goods and services cannot be treated as a logic of frontier, since this has not existed for 25 years, since the application of the Schengen Treaty, except for its partial restoration when political decisions are taken that followed the emergence of COVID-19.
The ODT was born as an observatory of a socio-economic nature. For this purpose, and to provide a public service to the entire cross-border community, it has the following functions:
- Statistical information on the territory of the Rio Minho EGTC
- Rio Minho EGTC Document Center
- Investigation Center
