ERTICO is delighted to announce that Maastricht, a city and a municipality in the South East of the Netherlands, has joined its Partnership. Maastricht is also the capital and largest city of the province of Limburg. This new collaboration opens the ERTICO network to another important player in the Public Authorities sector.
“ERTICO and the Public Authorities sector are now even better connected thanks to the new cooperation with the Maastricht municipality. Sharing knowledge while leveraging common goals will allow further deployment of innovative urban mobility solutions,” remarks Joost Vantomme, CEO at ERTICO-ITS Europe.
“We are excited to join this European public-private partnership of 120 companies and organisations with the goal to create safer, smarter and cleaner transport services and networks for the benefit of all. The city of Maastricht shares the ambition to drive forward the innovation and deployment of smart mobility solutions “, says Anouk Maas, the Business Development Manager at the Maastricht Convention Bureau.
The Maastricht Convention Bureau is a non-profit organisation with 35 years of experience that cooperates with all the relevant suppliers, hotels, regional governments and knowledge institutes in the Maastricht region. It also focuses on organising various international events and conferences. A significant emphasis is also put on transport and mobility development within the region.
