The added value of the German-Dutch cooperation was highlighted many times during the event. „Only you go faster, but together you go further“, summarizes Gedeputeerde Sander de Rouwe from Friesland and called on all guests to stand up for a united Europe. To ensure German-Dutch cooperation for the future, Franz-Josef Sickelmann, Regional Commissioner for Regional Development in Weser-Ems, and Paul Schilderink, Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate, have outlined the plans for the new INTERREG funding period starting in 2021. This is good news for the MariGreen consortium of 65 project partners. „We have achieved and learned a lot – both technologically and interpersonal, this is a good basis for the further development of the German-Dutch maritime cluster“, says Katja Baumann (MARIKO GmbH) and Leo van der Burg (FME), who are already preparing for a next cooperation project.
