The EUROACE Euroregion is made up of three regions: Alentejo (Portugal), Centro (Portugal) and the Extremaduran autonomous community (Spain). It was founded on 21 September 2009 in Vila Velha de Ródão, following the signing of the Agreement Establishing the EUROACE Working Community. This event certifies the three regions’ desire to reinforce and boost their cooperation.

This new agreement signed by the Regional Government of Extremadura (Junta de Extremadura) and the Regional Coordination and Development Commissions of Alentejo and Centro (Portugal) is the legal base for the creation of a large Euroregion between the three regions, in which projects are jointly developed for citizens, businesses and society at large. 

The EUROACE Euroregion is a body with no legal personality and possesses an open and dynamic structure, leaving the door open to all entities and organisations within the three regions, both public and private, that wish to participate.
