This Euregio is where Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands meet. They share borders, but also a common daily life and labour market with more than 26,000 cross-border commuters.
Natives can turn into international “newcomers” within walking distance. This mosaic of cultures and the diversity of the “near abroad” is core to regional identity in between Aachen, Maastricht, Liège, Eupen and Hasselt.
In your new or your native language, you are welcome to cross the border for whatever your reason may be – and add your own piece to our rich design.
Residents of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine live the “European idea” as they benefit from all the advantages of living and working in different countries.
Starting as a working group in 1976, the organisation of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine is now classified as a legal entity: an “EGTC” (European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation). Within this area, we show what is common across the borders.

that aims to promote living and working in an international top technology region with excellent career opportunities and a high quality of life in the heart of Europe.
Together with our partners we strive for a truly 360° cross-border labour market in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR) area where borders are not perceived as obstacles to mobility; but are instead a springboard to a broadened labour market. Our intention is to create a sustainable and coordinated euregional advisory and placement structure for the cross-border labour market by linking, harmonising and expanding existing services for job placement and advice within the EMR. In this way we want to reduce unemployment, overcome labour shortages and attract highly skilled and high-potential employees to the region.
we want newcomers to feel at home in the EMR. The youRegion team is well aware of the multitude of challenges that moving to a new region brings with it. When considering a new position that involves relocation, the question of how to align this with the partner’s career and family life plays a major role.
for partners of highly skilled and high-potential employees, we plan to set up a euregional dual career network to enable partners to pursue their careers in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine.
