The goals of the Transatlantic Partnerships are to accept differences, deepen understanding and recognize mutual interests.
Ever since the early 1980s, the Dräger Foundation has dedicated a great deal of energy to the continuity of transatlantic relations, focusing not only on the relations between Germany and the United States, but also on European-American relations, with the states of Eastern Europe increasingly becoming involved in the dialogue since the fall of the Berlin Wall.
International conferences with a wide variety of themes are staged jointly with American partners. Study groups with young German, European and American leaders tackle some of the more pressing issues of our time. The overriding goal of all these joint projects is to deepen mutual understanding of different problems on both sides of the Atlantic, and to identify common interests.
