North Lorraine Border Region Metropolitan Pole set upFebruary 2019
Created by the common desire of the presidents of eight Public Entities of Intermunicipal Cooperation, the new “North Lorraine Border Region Metropolitan Pole” was launched on 9 January 2019 in Thionville.
This grouping encompasses more than 337,000 inhabitants and represents nearly 70% of the 90,000 people from Lorraine working on the other side of the border. A consultative body, its aim is to improve cross-border cooperation with the neighbouring countries (Belgium, Luxembourg and Germany) in the areas of mobility, healthcare and higher education. It also aims to strengthen the identity of the North Lorraine territory both at national level and along its borders.Back to list
