“An organization that serves as an example” and “an example for cross-border cooperation in a united Europe”. The Ems Dollart Region (EDR) has been described in recent years with these or similar terms. Compliments that also entail an obligation. People have grown together in the border region since the existence of the EDR, which has been the case for more than 40 years.
The Ems Dollart Region (EDR) is the northernmost European border region along the Dutch-German border and was founded in 1977. The office is located in Bad Nieuweschans. It has developed into a Dutch-German meeting centre where cross-border meetings and other activities take place and numerous cross-border projects are set in motion.
