The mymaastricht.nl project is part of the Student & City (StudentenStad) working group, a collaborative project between Maastricht University, Gemeente Maastricht and ZUYD University of Applied Sciences. It originated from early 2014 when students expressed a lack in information being provided in a clear and findable manner. In August 2014 the project was picked up by a project team consisting of students from ZUYD and UM under coordination of an UM employee. The project was launched in late 2014 and has since undergone constant development. We collaborate with a plethora of local organisations to ensure the highest quality of content and present a complete overview of what the city of Maastricht has to offer. On March 3rd 2015 the mymaastricht.nl project officially registered as a ‘Stichting’ (foundation).
Representatives of all three stakeholders form the project’s ‘Bestuur’ (board), which oversees the activities of the foundation. The operational aspects of the website are coordinated by an employee of Maastricht University and executed by a team of two students.
