1 The Cross-border Metropolitan Regions Initiative (IMeG) in its multi-level dimension Dr. Gerd Hager Regionalverband Mittlerer Oberrhein, Germany

2 Levels of the German Spatial Planning System (Website commin.org) Principle of countervailing influence

3 The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development The core tasks of the BBSR include Generating and securing information basis, Drawing up reports, Creating expertise and appraisals, The management and expert care of various departmental research and support programmes, Transferring results in politics and science. BBR Bonn (headquarter) Deichmanns Aue Bonn Germany The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) within the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) is a departmental research institution under the portfolio of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS). It advices the Federal Government with sectoral scientific consultation in the political fields of spatial planning, urban development, housing and building.

4 Programmes of BBSR The Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) within the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR) supervises the departmental research of the Federal Ministry. Departmental Reseach General Departmental Research Experimental Housing and Urban Development (ExWoSt) Demonstration Projects of Spatial Planning (MORO) Future Building European Programmes European Spatial Planning Observation Network (ESPON) INTERREG

5 Demonstration Project of Spatial Planning (MORO) Demonstration Project of Spatial Planning (MORO) Supraregional partnerships in cross-border functional regions MORO is a research programme of the Federal Ministry of Transport, Building and Urban Development (BMVBS), supervised by the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) in the Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning (BBR). The initial phase of the IMeG will continue to be supported by MORO.

7 Starting point 2005 BBSR/BMVBS 2006: 40 Growth and innovation Wachstum und Innovation

8 Analysis and Strategy Cross-border dimension is missing Only eleven metropolitan regions within the national territory Questions: - Is there a further category? - What are the criteria for this category? - Which German regions might be qualified?

9 BBSR/BMVBS 2006: 40 Criteria cross-border functional interrelations and commonalities existing institutional agreements for large-scale cross-border cooperation large-scale regionalisation processes and a polycentric spatial structure metropolitan locational factors and potentials for growth and innovation
