National Focal Points

The "operational arms" of EPOMM on national level

A National Focal Point (NFP) either already is a network or platform of some sort (like BEPOMM in Belgium) or still needs to build up this network.The network consists of persons and organisations that are or might be interested in mobility management and the services of EPOMM.

Participation in the EPOMM NFP-workshops
  • EPOMM organises NFP-workshops and webinars– for mutual learning, experience exchange and policy transfers. NFPs are supposed to participate and select the topics they want.
