Sharing Marketplaces – Creating Transparency on Already Available Resources, Increasing Efficiency and Preventing Wastage



If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic has made the importance of collaborating and sharing assets clearer than ever. One central digital platform can help efficiently match demand and supply, paramount for flexibility and resilience. A sharing platform helps to optimise the use of existing assets of equipment, supplies, space, facilities, services and even staff – leading to more circular practices while simultaneously contributing to cost savings.

The Intrakoop sharing platform in the Netherlands connects more than 550 hospitals and long-term care organisations, having listed 200 plus items since its launch. These item range from PPE’s to furniture, ultrasound machines and meal wagons.

‘Genbrug of Donation’, the Danish sharing platform for Capital Region, was launched at the end of April 2022. Already within its first month, 650 items were exchanged to save more than €130.000 and 39,000 kg of CO2.
