German-Polish-Network "Oder-Partnership"


"Borders separate - the Oder connects” is the slogan of the German-Polish network or the Oder-Partnership.

The cooperation of the German-Polish informal interregional network began in April 2006 between four East German Federal States (Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony) and four West Polish Voivodeships (West Pomerania, Lower Silesia, Lubusz and Greater Poland).

Therefore the network cooperation focuses on the following sectors: economy, tourism, transport and infrastructure and science and research.
