Transatlantic Program

Since 1997, the German Federal Government has been promoting the German Program for Transatlantic Exchange (Transatlantic Program) through the European Recovery Program (ERP, a.k.a. the Marshall Plan). The funds are managed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and offer financial support to projects that promote exchange between Germany and the US in the fields of culture, education, science, and economics. The Transatlantic Program aims to strengthen and reinforce the synergies that connect Europe with the United States. Projects funded by the program serve the following purposes:

  • To project an all-encompassing image of German culture and language
  • To foster exchange between individuals, multipliers, and leaders, particularly of the younger generation
  • To provide a platform for the sharing of opinions on current and future issues
  • To promote meetings aimed at economic cooperation

These initiatives aspire to lend fresh momentum to transatlantic relations. They should take an innovative approach and speak to the public interest.

 

Events & Programs

As part of the “Transatlantic Dialogue” the GACC South organizes roundtable discussions in the southern US as well as delegation trips to Germany on topical issues in logistics and mobility. These exchange programs aim to promote the sharing of information and experiences between industry stakeholders such as local government officials, urban planners, and company representatives in the hopes of identifying common goals, challenges, and solutions.
