Amici ad Mosam was founded by MECC Maastricht and Maastricht Convention Bureau in 2011, to create a network and platform between regional academics, MECC Maastricht, and the Maastricht Convention Bureau. For many years now these two organisations have been building a relationship with academics from Maastricht & region. Together with them, they try to get conventions and scientific meetings to come to Maastricht & region and to initiate new ones.
The award is sponsord by Brightlands. Brightlands allows scientists, researchers and entrepeneurs to come together in order to create added value for scientific research and medical technology. Conventions are of essential importance to establish those connections.
