EPOMM-PLUS: Partners Learning Urban Sustainability EPOMM is an IEE project aiming at the development of mobility management over Europe.
EPOMM has been successful in part, but its dissemination work is restricted by lack of resources. Mobility Management promotes sustainable transport by changing attitudes and behaviour. At its core are inexpensive "soft" measures that have a high benefit-cost ratio, enhancing or reducing the need for investment in infrastructure (e.g. new tram lines, roads, etc.). Key decision-makers may not know about Mobility Management or may doubt its effectiveness because it is a relatively new concept. EPOMM-PLUS will address this by: - Transferring existing good practice (often developed with EU funding) and - Supporting existing local pioneers by developing national networks. The objectives of EPOMM-PLUS are: - Institutionalisation: Create 17 national networks and enrol the relevant national ministry to become an EPOMM member - Implementation: Initiate a large number of Mobility Management projects - Spread: make EPOMM multi-lingual - Transfer good practice between countries; from EU-projects to national levels - Impact: Extend the influence of EPOMM into countries where Mobility Management is under-recognised
