Welcome to my personal website. My name is Carlien Roodink and I am a digital innovation optimist with a solid background in the traditional financial sector. As a former member of the Amsterdam City Council I have a strong interest in Smart Cities.
I am currently hired by the European Commission (DG Move) to support the action cluster Sustainable Urban Mobility of the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities & Communities.
I am frequently asked as a conference moderator and public speaker. I give workshops & lectures and publish frequently (see publications and blogposts). As an independent consultant I am involved in several project consortia and I am an advisor to startups on funding and business issues. With my extensive network I support them in forming strategic partnerships as wel.
