WHO ARE THE FOUNDERS?
With support of the Interreg North Sea Region project SHARE-North, Autodelen.net and Mpact developed The European Shared Mobility Accelerator. They are two non-profit organisations based in Belgium, but creating shared mobility buzz in Europe and beyond.
Mpact started its shared mobility activities already in 1975, Autodelen.net was founded in 2003. Together they have more than 64 years of experience on shared mobility, working in many European funded programmes (e.g. MOMO-Car-Sharing, Stars, SocialCar, Care-North, G-PATRA, Inclusion). They are members of the official advisory board for transport for the Flemish and Brussels regional governments.
Autodelen.net and Mpact have years of experience in collaborating with local cities like Ghent, Mechelen, Brussels, Leuven, but are working internationally as well. Their event Shared Mobility Rocks in 2021 had visitors from 66 countries, collaborations with studios on every continent and expert speakers from almost every time zone.
Both organisations have a mission to see shared mobility as a tool to make cities more liveable and regions more accessible. Shared Mobility is a way to lead to more sustainable travel like walking, cycling or collective transport.
