ECOMM
The European Conference on Mobility Management

The annual meeting place for mobility management practitioners

The ECOMM has developed as THE meeting place for Mobility Management practitioners and experts all over Europe. ECOMM is a three day event with excursions, keynote speeches, an exhibition, 50-80 presentations and workshops and lots of opportunities for making new contacts. It takes place every year in May in a European city selected by EPOMM and attracts 300-400 delegates.

Papers are selected by an International Programme Committee (IPC) with appointed experts from all EPOMM member states. The programme is developed in a cooperation between the host city, the IPC and EPOMM. EPOMM takes care that the ECOMM maintains its agreeable size, its high quality, and also strives for its continuous improvement.

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 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 17 cities in 8 different countries.

The word CIVITAS was coined by joining three key components of a modern European society, namely City, Vitality and Sustainability. The EU co-funded initiative was launched in 2002 to redefine transport measures and policies in order to create cleaner, better transport in cities.

More specifically, it has helped develop safe and eco-friendly transport in over 60 demonstration cities, testing more than 700 measures and urban transport solutions, supported by the intensive exchange of good practices in the field. CIVITAS cities take an integrated and participatory approach that addresses all modes and aspects of transport in cities. Each city implements a set of mobility solutions to address their particular local priorities and issues.

The demonstration cities are part of the larger CIVITAS Forum network, an active community comprising almost 200 cities committed to implementing and integrating sustainable urban mobility measures.

If you would like to be a part of this exciting community pioneering clean urban transport in Europe and beyond, you can get your city to join CIVITAS and build its own greener future with our support.

On one side guaranties the monitoring and technical/economic reporting of the measures which have been admitted to co-funding by the Sustainable Mobility Fund, of which 108 concern metropolitan areas and 90 concern municipalities not considered part of metropolitan areas. On the other side it allows the evaluation of the environmental effectiveness of these measures, on the basis of standardised methodologies of calculation and through the use of a set of 13 indicators suitably applied to each of the 9 types of measures eligible for co-funding. The indicators were designed by analysing the Detailed Operational Plans of the measures proposed by the municipalities and approved by the Ministry of the Environment following the CIVITAS-MAESTRO methodology, developed within Programme Frameworks of the European Union.

IPC MEMBERS
INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMME COMMITEE

The International Programm Committee (IPC) is selected by the EPOMM Board assisted by the EPOMM Coordinator. The IPC-members are volunteers from the EPOMM member states (two per country) from the host city (2) and from other European countries (1 per country). EPOMM is very grateful for their support.

ROLE AND HISTORY
History
The IPC was established in 1997, before EPOMM, and consisted of experts of MM in Europe and North America, selected by the host city, as recommended by the former host city. They advised the organisers on the ECOMM and selected the papers to be presented. Meanwhile, EPOMM has taken up much of this function, but the IPC still plays an important role and is valuable as a rather informal expert network resource with considerable knowledge on MM developments in Europe.

Role
The IPC experts advise EPOMM on the content of the ECOMM, recommend Keynote Speakers and Impulse Speakers, grade the submitted abstracts and, when the have time, join for a final IPC-meeting at the beginning of each year to finally select the papers and fix most of the details of the conference programme.
