Limburg and North Rhine-Westphalia working on border issues

Two meetings were held this week between deputy dr. Joost van den Akker (Economy and Knowledge Infrastructure) and his colleague minister Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart of North Rhine-Westphalia. During these meetings, deputy Van den Akker indicated that he would like to establish more cooperation between North Rhine-Westphalia and Limburg in the future.​

 Together with a large neighbor such as North Rhine-Westphalia and knowledge institutes such as Maastricht University and RWTH in Aachen, the Euregion can only become stronger if international cooperation is also being pursued in the field of innovation.
