Basic information for the following contribution was given by Ivo Gönner, mayor of the city of Ulm and, at that time, president of the “Städtetag Baden-Württemberg”, during an interview on July 22, 2010. This meeting with an international group with participants from France, Germany, Portugal, Romania and Spain was part of the 9th edition of the 2h2s-seminary.
At this point, it is important to mention that Ioan Ianoș organized the first 2h2s-seminary in 2002 in Romania. Subsequently, he and his staff at CICADIT organized the conferences in 2009 and 2013. In all these scientific meetings, we analyzed manifold phenomena of regional change and discussed perspectives of regional development in a comparative perspective. These topics are main fields of Ioan’s scientific interests. So, this essay is dedicated to Professor Ioan Ianoș, as member of the 2h2s-consortium and reliable cooperation partner of the Geographic Research Group on Migration and Transitionin Bamberg.

The urban agglomeration of Ulm and Neu-Ulm is the administrative center of the planning region “Donau-Iller” in Southern Germany. This crossborder planning region counts almost one million inhabitants. Thereof the city of Ulm, which belongs to the German Bundesland “Baden-Württemberg”, has 122 000 inhabitants. Bavaria’s Neu-Ulm counts 53 000 people. This is not the only difference of this disproportionate twin-city: for example, Ulm was founded in early medieval times, whereas “New-Ulm” – nomen est omen – is a younger foundation dating back to the 19th century.
