The ECOMM 2017 conference is organized by Maastricht Bereikbaar (Accessible Maastricht), the City of Maastricht, the Province of Limburg and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment and is supported by the University of Hasselt and the Breda University of Applied Sciences.
Maastricht Bereikbaar (Accessible Maastricht)
Joining forces for smart accessibility. That is what Maastricht Bereikbaar (Acccessible Maastricht) is all about. We are a collaborative effort by government institutions, the business community, and transporters. Together, we work on keeping Maastricht and the South Limburg accessible by providing smart alternatives to travelling by car during rush hour. Through more than 20 projects we encourage the use of e-bikes, bicycles, public transport, working smart and smart parking. In addition to promotional offers for commuters, we are also focusing on visitors, students, and the logistics sector.

Gemeente Maastricht (City of Maastricht)
Maastricht is a historic, gastronomic city yet also knowledge based with a young international university and health campus attracting expats from all over the world. As municipality our mission is to create and keep a great living and working climate. Dealing with matters such as mobility means that we strive for solutions which fit the character of the city best. Therefore, infrastructural changes and area development go hand in hand to not only improve the accessibility of the city but also the liveability and sustainability of the city. For more information see www.gemeentemaastricht.nl.
Provincie Limburg (Province of Limburg)
Limitless potential in the Limburg Euregion: leading the way to a smarter tomorrow
Together with local and regional government authorities, companies and residents, we are investing in a future-proof, affordable, cleaner and smarter mobility system - for our residents, for our travellers and for our visitors.
In this way, we can combine different means of transport to create an accessible city, improving the digital infrastructure and creating fast bike routes as a healthy and eco-friendly alternative. And the highly developed logistics sector can enjoy an additional boost along the way, with extra rail and water connections.
Aptly appropriate for our Euregion: cross-community and cross-border.

Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment
Around 2010 accessibility issues were becoming increasingly urgent. This is why the Dutch government committed to major investments in new roads; approximately 88 billion until 2028. However, especially around cities, limited space is available for new infrastructure. New ways were needed for optimising the use of existing roads. The
government realised this is not something it could do by itself. The Optimising Use programme of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment is organised as an
innovative collaboration. The programme has clear objectives and ambitions. It brings together regional and national governments and businesses, which work together to
achieve better accessibility in twelve regions. We welcome you to come to our Café and talk to us about how we executed the Optimising Use programme.
NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences
How can we ensure that cities are both accessible and liveable? In order to achieve this goal, mobility management plays a crucial role. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment and NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences collaborate on a professorship Mobility Management. The goal is to collect and connect knowledge around mobility management topics and to bring this together in a knowledge portal for professionals. The content of the knowledge portal is developed, shaped and applied in: courses, projects and internships. Make sure you do not miss the launch at ECOMM!
