SHAREway2event promotes the opportunities and the functioning of Sharing Economy and fosters partnerships among EU collaborative platforms
The sharing economy covers several sectors - from sharing houses and car journeys, to domestic services - and it is rapidly growing across Europe. According to data collected through the Eurobarometer Survey "The use of Collaborative Econom", many people in the EU have already used, or are aware of collaborative economy services. In particular nearly a quarter of Europeans have used services offered via collaborative platforms, mostly in the accomodation and trasport sector (23% compared to 17% in 2016).
The sharing economy offers greater choice to consumers and new opportunities to entrepreneurs, even though some costraints persist. The Eurobarometer refers that the most frequently mentioned advantage of collaborative platforms is a convenient access to services, while the main disadvantage is the lack of clarity about who is responsible in case of problems.
The event aims to promote a debate about the development of the Sharing Economy phenomenon and the exchange of practices and knowledges by fostering connections between companies, communities, platforms, academic stakeholders and public authorities.
The event is organized in two sessions:
