Since 1977, the Eems Dollard Region in Bad Nieuweschans has been a European partnership of some 90 authorities in the Northern Netherlands and Lower Saxony. The objective is cross-border cooperation in many areas: economy, labour market, education, culture, innovation. Thanks to the support of our members and partners and the use of EU funding, many concrete projects can be carried out to achieve concrete results in cross-border cooperation (www.edr.eu).
