Onno van Veldhuizen 

“By ignoring boundaries we can complete the circle”  Onno van Veldhuizen, mayor of Enschede.

Enschede is located on the edge of the Netherlands but also centrally in a region with more than 3 million inhabitants. That’s why we strengthen ties with our German neighbours in Niedersachsen en NordRhein Westfalen. To create a recognizable economic region in the triangle Netwerkstad Twente, Münster and Osnabrück.




Stefan Michel

The Dutch-German public entity EUREGIO has been dealing with cross-border cooperation for the past 60 years. Many successes have been achieved in the field of Dutch-German cooperation in our border region, yet there are still a number of challenges waiting to be solved. Cross-border commuters, an integrated labour market and crucial infrastructure are some of the topics EUREGIO is working on, pursuing the overall vision of eventually creating a region where the border has lost its negative impact.

Annika Jaansoo 

She is a PhD student at the University of Twente. 
Why there is so little cross-border cooperation in Europe? 
Why do some local governments cooperate and some not? What are the triggers? 
In her presentation, Annika Jaansoo will discuss the challenges of cross-border cooperation based on the findings of her research project.
