The Munich Metropolitan Region is organised in an association that is primarily financed by membership fees. Membership is voluntary. The structure of the members is very interdisciplinary. They range from districts and municipalities to large and small companies, universities, colleges and associations. In its projects and decisions, the EMM e. V. strives for the greatest possible consensus in order to maintain its neutrality. The association does not have any planning competences. Its work focuses on the networking of actors and the transfer of knowledge on relevant topics in order to develop the region in a polycentric manner and to maintain and expand its innovative strength.
