Mobility as a Service – 9 & 10 March – join us!

Following a relatively recent and at times difficult start, it’s time to take stock of MaaS and its promises.
The stakes of MaaS are well known. Different kinds of questions are arising today, over and above the technical difficulties of implementation: which governance model is effective from the perspective of authorities? How can MaaS really address the challenges of mobility? What business models for these applications? What developments tomorrow?
