Where we achieve impact

We focus on selected regions in our work. We feel a particular obligation to Essen and the Ruhr region, as this is where Stiftung Mercator is at home. Our projects achieve impact on many levels throughout Germany, and many discussions take place in Berlin, which is an important site of political communication. In addition, our activities in Europe, Turkey and China are of key importance in our view if international challenges are to be successfully overcome.
