Do the EGTC representing at least 3 members from 3 countries are considered by the Programme as 2 stakeholders from 2 members stated or just one?

An EGTC (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation) is considered as one partner and counts only as one country (the country where the headquarters are situated) regarding the eligibility criteria. However, the geographical scope of the entire EGTC will be assessed during the proposal assessment.
