Launch ITEM cooperation RWTH and workshop 'Shaping future cross-border mobility solutions'
In the course of the Interreg V-A project emr connect, we jointly engage in improving cross-border mobility and transport-related collaboration in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR). Overall, the consortium includes public transport companies, universities and municipalities from the Belgian, Dutch and German parts of the EMR.
One major objective is to establish a platform of interaction that constructively brings together various transport and mobility actors that are operating in the EMR, called Transport Think Tank (3T). Our plans are to develop the 3T initiative into a cross-border cluster organisation which continues to create synergies of interaction between every partner who wants to be involved. We cordially invite you to actively participate in the starting event:
Our first 3T workshop will take place on Monday, 26 August 2019, at Centre Céramique in Maastricht, 15.00-18.00 (Avenue Céramique 50 – 6221 KV Maastricht, Pierre Kempzaal, 6th floor). According to the motto ‘Shaping future cross-border mobility solutions’, our international networking event will bring together various mobility and transport-related companies, research institutes and political actors from Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. After selected keynote presentations, a workshop (in a ‘World Café’ format) will explore your requirements and potential contributions with respect to improved cross-border mobility and stimulate the development of ideas on viable collaborative solutions.
We are proud that this 3T event also establishes our dedicated cooperation between ITEM, the Institute of Transnational and Euregional cross border cooperation and Mobility at Maastricht University, and academic partners involved in emr connect.
We would be very pleased to welcome you on August 26 in Maastricht. You can register through 31 July online at https://forms.gle/QTjnqjgtcsicrsXb9 or by sending an email to henrik.basche[at]geo.rwth-aachen[dot]de.
