What is the meaning of hinweg in this context:

Im Digitalrat gibt es eine große Offenheit über Parteigrenzen hinweg

I have checked in Duden but still no idea why it is used at the end of the sentence. Is it simply to double highlight the existence of Digitalrat somehow?


The adverb hinweg pairs with the preposition über to a standing expression meaning "crossing something". The usage of this expression is marked as elevated in some dictionaries.

Your sentence translates along the lines of

There is a strong cross-party openness in the Digitalrat
