Partnership with Cluj-Napoca, Romania
A delegation visit to Cluj-Napoca in August 2019 marked the beginning of a promising cooperation between Dortmund and the Romanian city Cluj-Napoca. Cluj-Napoca, the second most important economic center after Bucharest, is a very “young” city, among others due to its universities and a dynamic development of start-ups. Both cities have many similarities.
The municipal cooperation focuses on the issues energy and water, technology and digitization as well as local innovation ecosystems. It is supported by the German Embassy Bucharest.
