i-share Symposium on the status quo and future of the sharing economy

Join us at the Hertie School for the 4th symposium of the research project i-share: The sharing economy’s impact in Germany, sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The day-long symposium brings together representatives from politics, business, and civil society, and aims to debate the status quo and the future of the sharing economy.

  • During the morning session (11:00 am – 1:30 pm, in German), researchers will present insights on plurality, characteristics and diffusion of organizations in the sharing economy in Germany.
  • During the afternoon session (2:30pm – 4:15 pm, in English), Pieter van de Glind will give a keynote speech, and debate the future of the sharing economy together with fellow experts.

More information can be found on the i-share project website.
