AEuCC (Agrupación Europea de Cooperación Territorial Ciudades de la Cerámica / European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation Cities of Ceramics) is a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation created in 2014 that groups together the four longstanding national Associations of Cities of Ceramics, based in Italy (AiCC), France (AfCC), Spain (AeCC) and Romania (ArCC).
Each association represents municipalities with “ancient ceramic tradition” (Italy, 34 cities; France, 22 cities; Spain, 29 cities, Rumania, 12 cities). In total, the area of the AEuCC EGTC includes 97 European cities.
The mission of AEuCC is to develop territorial and transnational cooperation in the field of ceramic art and craft, mainly to create social and economic cohesion, by developing projects and services for the ceramic sector stakeholders.
AEuCC is open to new members, which need to be “associations of cities of ceramics” (at least three cities from the same country). In order to enlarge the EGTC, the cities willing to create a new association are granted “observer status” and are allowed to participate in the AEuCC works.
