In the german press releases of the Agrar Presseportal and the University of Koblenz-Landau of 07.05. and 08.05.2019 respectively, the visit of Daniela Schmitt, State Secretary for Economic Affairs, to the Landau campus was reported. Six current Interreg projects were presented, including SuMo-Rhine. The Agrar Presseportal writes that “State Secretary for Economic Affairs Daniela Schmitt informed herself at the University of Koblenz-Landau about cross-border research projects in the Upper Rhine region as part of the EU campaign “Europe makes it possible”. Cooperation between partners from Germany, France and Switzerland is made possible by the cross-border EU funding programme Interreg V A “Upper Rhine”. “Thanks to European funding, the University of Koblenz-Landau can work together with European partners on excellent cross-border research projects with an international impact. This will enable us to better position the Upper Rhine in global competition and jointly develop solutions for the region,” said State Secretary Daniela Schmitt of the Rhineland-Palatinate Ministry of Economic Affairs, which is responsible for the Interreg A programmes in Rhineland-Palatinate. In the current funding period, the University of Koblenz-Landau will receive around three million euros in ERDF funding from the Interreg V A “Upper Rhine” programme. For example, the “SUMO-RHINE” project supports cities and municipalities in the Upper Rhine region in the sustainable expansion of their transport systems. Scientists are developing suitable strategies, concepts and instruments. “
