Metropolitan Areas in Germany

Metropolregion macht mobil

Metropolitan areas are offering a reliable platform for the cooperation of economy, science, municipalities and the Land for an area that is not presenting the administrative limits but the economic interrelations.

The European metropolitan areas are increasingly recognized during the last decade. As a platform for the formation of partnerships between town and country, between the urban cores and the surrounding rural areas, the metropolitan areas receive increased political and conceptual attention.

Metropolitan regions are characterized by a successful long-term cooperation in innovative governance-structures, which is expressed by a relevant cooperation between various government and non-governmental partners beyond administrative borders. The systematical inclusion of social actors like big commercial enterprises, scientific and cultural institutions, the involvement of politics and the civil society takes place in individual public-private-partnership-models, partly flexible and project-related, partly in composed administrative structures. With a close connection of many different participants, large-scale action strategies are allowed.

As multifunctional spaces, whose prominent functions reach beyond the actual region, the metropolitan areas are increasingly recognized as impulse generators. This impulses result from the existing concentration of people, companies, institutions and infrastructure. The metropolitan regions form the spatial platform for cluster and networks, for culture initiatives, for transport associations and logistics concepts, for regional parks, national and international location marketing activities, for climate protection and energy supply and for the representation of interests at the federal government and the EU.
