History: from ECOMM to EPOMM
The European Conference on Mobility Management was founded as the final conference of the MOMENTUM research project - in Amsterdam 1997. The International Programme Committee (IPC) was formed and decided to develop it into a series and the next host was Nottingham in the UK in 1998. It became obvious that there was a necessity to develop a platform to provide some continuity. In 1999, EPOMM was born, first as a European project, and since 2003 as an international association. Since 1997, the ECOMM has taken place every year, in meanwhile 19 cities in 8 different countries.
