Networking in a transnational cooperation space - the case of the Oder partnership

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The globalisation of economic relations in conjunction with the European integration process has resulted in the creation of strategic networks between cities and regions on a transnational level. The overall motivation is to combine strengths and to balance weaknesses in order to compete with other spaces. In this context, the Polish-German “Oder Partnership” created in 2006 between four voivodships and four federal states including Berlin may be interpreted as a transborder strategy to foster the economic development of the deprived regions from a European perspective. A look on its first steps shows the potentials of the network tool as well as obstacles on the long way to the creation of stable cooperation structures. – (BJ)
