EPOMM is the European Platform on Mobility Management, a network of governments in European countries that are engaged in Mobility Management (MM). They are represented by the Ministries that are responsible for MM in their countries. EPOMM is organised as an international non- profit organisation with seat in Leuven.
The main aims of EPOMM are:
To promote and further develop Mobility Management in Europe
To support active information exchange and learning on Mobility Management between European countries
The main tools to achieve this are:
This website (epomm.eu) containing the most updated and most in-depth information and tools on MM available.
Our monthly e-update providing specific information on a mobility management topic
The renowned yearly ECOMM - European Conference on Mobility Management with about 400 delegates taking place every year in a city in an EPOMM member state.
The EPOMM National Focal Points (NFP):, the national mobility management networks of each EPOMM member country. They support the interchange between the European level and the national, regional and local level.
Training and Workshops organised by EPOMM. Most prominent are the NFP- Workshops that take place twice a year, hosted by the member countries and featuring information exchange on MM-aspects and MM-implementation. Other training and workshops are organised on demand.
EU-relations: regular contacts with European institutions and cooperations make our voice heard in Europe.
Project Networking: EPOMM maintains a regular exchange with European projects, researching or promoting Mobility Management. As such, it has prime access to the project results and information and helps to preserve project know-how beyond the end of the projects.
With this array of tools EPOMM sets the Agenda for MM in Europe and creates a range of benefits for its members. For more info please read the EPOMM Manifesto.
