metrobasel was formally constituted as an association in April 2008. The founding partners were the canton of Basel-Stadt and Novartis International. At the same time, the association took over the metrobasel programme, which had been launched by BAK Basel Economics in 2005.
metrobasel’s purpose is to create a platform and voice and to be a protagonist of the Basel metropolitan region in support of the efforts of government, business and civil society in making the “metrobasel 2020” vision into reality. This calls for the maintenance and enhancement of the international competitiveness of the Basel metropolitan region and its sustainable development.
