International Affairs

The Office for International Affairs is the central point of contact for the city’s European work and international activities.

Cosmopolitanism, internationality and cultural diversity characterize Hannover. The Office for International affairs concerns itself with regional, European and international networks and cooperational arrangements.

We initiate projects, provide advice on EU-related issues and support for projects in Hannover which advance European unity and international understanding.
