Sharing, collaborating and leading in areas of importance to mountain biking.

Join our IMBA Europe Communities

 

The IMBA Europe Communities cooperate in identifying and addressing the main challenges in a variety of subject areas in the interests of mountain biking and for the wider societal, policy and business benefits identified in IMBA EU’s vision and mission. 

IMBA Europe Communities aim to;

  • Share expertise and resources to grow and defend their interests.
  • Gather and share knowledge about trends in society and in policy
  • Connect across different sectors and with outside experts. 
  • Face common challenges in regulation and government policies. 
  • Create standards so that products and services can operate across Europe.
  • Compete for public support such as research and infrastructure funding.
  • Build relationships with their peers that strengthen the whole sector.
  • Meet potential partners, suppliers and customers for collaborative innovation and business development, especially at the leading edge of new products and services. 

Collaborating within IMBA Europe will allow this to happen in a way that is really efficient but also ensures that the collaboration supports the whole mountain biking community.
