Who owns the data we share?
What is Europe’s potential
in a globalized
and sharing economy?
Embassy Lab SHAReCONOMY provides a space for an international interdisciplinary dialogue and a creative exchange on a broad range of issues, such as:
What is Sharing Economy‘s economic impact today, how can it increase productivity, and what is Europe’s potential in this globalized economy?
How can Sharing Economy foster social innovation and how to unfold its ecological potential?
What is the nature of the new employment relationships and how are the “peers” protected?
Who owns the data (we share) and how to bridge the digital divide?
How to give space for innovation and help develop Sharing Economy‘s potential while reducing its negative effects?
Dr. Guido Biessen
Head Economic Department
Kingdom of the Netherlands
Learning from the international exchange of experiences, among others between Amsterdam and Berlin (and Barcelona), “Embassy Lab SHAReCONOMY” highlights the pros and cons of Sharing Economy and addresses the transition-related problems.
The program focuses on the policy challenges, examining if next to existing legislation new legislation is needed – and then at what level: local, national or European.
