Bergen has put into practice several policies to encourage international cooperation. A new International Plan for the city is been prepared by the municipality. Funding for international cooperation is integrated in the budgets of different departments, such as the cultural affairs department or in supra municipal administrations such the Hordaland fylkeskommune (Hordaland County Council) which has an international agency for internationalization. Bergen supports local universities in order to attract foreign students, and ensures that foreign student populations take an active part in the city life.
