Keynote speech on shared mobility and Mobility as a Service | Ananda Groag from shareNL
ShareNL is the international knowledge and network platform for the sharing economy. As a shared mobility expert Ananda Groag consults, presents, researches and brainstorms about the future of (shared) transportation, MaaS and related topics.

In 2015, she brought together 42 organisations in a private-public partnership to grow car sharing together. Amongst other projects, she introduced a yearly Benelux car sharing conference and launched and manages an independent news & knowledge website about car sharing (

She developed an interest for mobility at TomTom, working with navigation, maps, fleet management, real-time traffic data and the taxi industry. Ananda practises what she preaches and does not own a car. She seamlessly combines different modes of transportation.

In her speech she will address question such as: How does the future of transportation look from a sharing economy perspective? If boundaries between consumer and producer, public and private blur, how does that affect the mobility landscape? Ananda Groag from shareNL takes us on a journey to explore the potential of shared mobility towards an automated future.

Interactive panel discussion on next steps in public-private cooperation, integral approach, behavioural insights and customized mobility.
