STRING promotes regional development and green growth in the corridor stretching from the Öresund Region to Hamburg. The STRING partners are Region Skåne, The Capital Region of Denmark, The City of Copenhagen, Region Zealand, Schleswig-Holstein and City of Hamburg. In 2011 the partners agreed on establishing a permanent STRING secretariat to coordinate and promote the joint agenda of the partners, and implement the political decisions. The work shall build on the politics and initiatives that are already part of the partner´s political agendas, priorities and activities. What STRING adds to this is a joint political goal, emerging when the common objectives and actions of Northern Europe´s strongest economies are put forward and placed on the political agenda.
