    Hi,

    I'm not a teacher, but this is my take on,

    It should be 'across Europe' as a preposition.

    When natives pronounce the word, it sounds 'cross'

    For example:

    ...implemented systems across Europe.

    ...installed systems on over 300 branches across the country.

    ...conducting projects across Europe.

    ...travelling across Europe.

    Are those corrects?
