ESCP-Europe hosts this event in January 2016 addressing the question: How does the sharing economy disrupt individual behaviors, industries and public regulation?
Airbnb, Kickstarter, Uber, Fab Labs, The Food Assembly, etc.: the rise of these collaborative initiatives no doubt constitutes one of the most striking revolutions of the present day. However, despite the rise of the “sharing economy”, no consensus about its definition yet exists. It pertains to a broad set of industries, including collaborative finance (crowdfunding), collaborative production (3D printing, FabLabs, DIY, etc.) collaborative education (e.g. open education and open knowledge) and finally collaborative consumption.
Throughout this workshop, the impact of the sharing economy will be discussed on various dimensions.
The call for the submission of extended paper abstracts ends on October 30th, 2015. Find more information at the conference homepage: http://shareeco.strikingly.com/
