Doing business in the neighbouring regions of the Euregio sounds attractive to extend your market. But what about the rules and procedures concerning entrepreneurship in these countries? They appear different from what we are used to here in the Netherlands. And if you are not prepared for this, working across the border may turn out differently than expected.

Better information means better business! Do you want to know what to take into account when you want to do business across the border or work in a neighbouring country? Then come to the first “youRegion ZZP network and information event” at the Centre Céramique in Maastricht on 21 June. The specialists of the ZZP Fabriek Maastricht, MIC, SGA, GIP and ITEM will give shape to this topic in an interactive and hands-on way.

The theme of this meeting will be: ” Grow Your Business Beyond Borders – A Cross Border Market Assessment”.

The Maastricht International Centre (MIC) is a joint venture between various institutions that together strengthen the potential of the Maastricht region as a centre of international business, a source of highly educated knowledge professionals and a location for ground-breaking research.


The Cross-Border Employment Service (SGA) actively helps employers and jobseekers in Dutch and Belgian Limburg to find personnel and work on the other side of the border, respectively.


The Cross-Border Information Point (GIP) is the point of contact for questions from border-crossers about, amongst others, tax and social security systems in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands.


The Institute for Transnational and Euregional cross-border cooperation and Mobility supports and promotes – from a scientific point of view – the Euregional and transnational functioning of society.
