    Abstract This paper describes the results of a study investigating cross-border networking by enterprises in the border region of the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, the so-called Euregion Maas-Rhine. Special attention is given to knowledge transfer and sourcing of technology across borders. The study was undertaken in view of the completion of the European internal market in 1993, which was widely expected to induce enterprises to make more effective use of available opportunities to improve their innovative and hence competitive potential. It was found that the majority of enterprises is still oriented towards a purely national environment. Enterprises that are engaged in cross-border networking, however, seem to be doing better than the ones that maintain a national orientation. Experiences of enterprises in cross-border networking form the basis for policy recommendations to promote economic and technological co-operation in the Euregion Maas-Rhine.
