Dernière mise à jour le :13/10/2016


Public inter-municipal cooperation establishments (EPCI) are groups of municipalities formed with the purpose of elaborating "joint development projects within perimeters of solidarity". They are subject to common, homogenous rules that are comparable to those of local authorities. Urban Communities, Conurbation Communities, Communities of Municipalities, New Township Syndicates, Voluntary Municipal Consortiums and Mixed Syndicates are all such public inter-municipal cooperation establishments (EPCI).
