The paper gets the dual objective of adding to theory development in addition to to the debate concerning the added value of EU Cohesion Policy.
Experimentalist governance theory suggests that a virtuous feedback loop between policy design and implementation can the input-and output-legitimacy of policy making.
EU Cohesion Policy formally resembles this experimentalist setting, but persistent debates about its added value suggest that the virtuous loop is blocked.
The paper uses new institutionalism theory to systematically identify theoretical explanations because of this blockage.
It argues that the experimentalist link between organizational structure, pooling of experiences, greater participation, and policy learning is highly precarious.
First, the rational-choice perspective shows that the link rests on the optimistic assumption of a standard utility function among the participating actors.

Cross-border co-operation within the Danube Macroregion has mainly been in line with the co-operation of subject at municipal levels, which have created euroregions.
Only during last a decade the co-operation entities on higher than municipal parameters started to appear, which is true also for Czech-Slovak border.
Therefore, co-operation of Moravian-Silesian and Žilina Regions under the TRITIA EGTC umbrella has been selected as an example of the co-operation managed by the territorial units at a higher than municipal but less than national level.
The goal of the case study was an analysis whether the institutionalisation of cross-border co-operation – irrespective of the legal type of this institutionalisation – helps to make the co-operation more efficient in both financial as well as territorial integration terms.
However this barrier could be partly eliminated by conducting a cross-border co-operation (CBC), that may result into creation of cross-border regions.
These regions create their own governance structures, which cope with individual CBC areas.
The purpose of this paper is analysis so how exactly does newly created Czech-Polish-Slovak European Grouping of Territorial Co-operation (EGTC) TRITIA take into account environmental protection as you of its co-operation areas.

Theoretical section of paper was done by desk-research, its analytical part is principally based on own qualitative research results in the EGTC TRITIA.
Research outcomes confirm initial hypothesis that as EGTC TRITIA region core is presented by axis Ostrava – Katowice – probably the most polluted portion of the EU, the environment is among co-operation priorities.
Research outcomes show that it is desirable to widen current flat co-operation scope and add the partners representing national and euroregional levels also in the EGTC TRITIA governance to ensure proper environmental protection also across in the cross-border context.

Second, the discursive perspective demonstrates the identification of shared interests depends on highly demanding speech conditions.
Third, the sociological perspective highlights that the evaluation of information is socially conditioned.
Therefore, learning could be predicated on fallacious assumptions and result in undesired results.
The paper substantiates these insights with empirical evidence from one case of institutionalized cross-border cooperation in East Central Europe.
