Abstract:

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 economic development in from a European perspective deprived regions. 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
