PLACE OF STRATEGIC DIALOGUE BETWEEN BUSINESS, SCIENCE, POLITICS AND ADMINISTRATION Zukunft Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar e.V.

The non-profit association Zukunft Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar e.V. (Future Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar), based in Mannheim, was created by the merger of Rhein-Neckar-Dreieck e.V. and the private Initiative Zukunft Rhein-Neckar-Dreieck (Initiative for the Future of the Rhine-Neckar Triangle). It was founded on 19 April 2006. Since then, the network has brought together the best minds from business, science, culture, politics and other public institutions to work together for a common goal: to establish the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar as one of the most attractive and competitive regions in Europe by 2025.

The organisation is based on its statute of association which sets out its purpose, member structure, financing and bodies as well as their responsibilities. The work of the association is supported by contributions (1 €/day) and donations from its currently more than 750 members and sponsors.
