Maastricht University has recently founded a new Institute for Transnational and Euregional Cross Border Cooperation and Mobility (ITEM). ITEM is an initiative developed by the interfaculty Maastricht Centre for Citizenship, Migration and Development (MACIMIDE) in cooperation with the province of Limburg and the municipality of Maastricht. The goal of ITEM is to contribute to the promotion of cross-border mobility in the Maas-Rhine Euregion.
