Collaborative consumption opportunities open up many new services and offerings for consumers. At the same time, however, they are also under criticism: concentration of power, circumvention of protection standards or a lack of data protection are some of the points of criticism.
Against the background of this debate, the EU Commission has invited to a discussion on the state of the collaborative economy in Germany. Representatives of politics, science and business met here to discuss the current state of affairs and options for action. ConPolicy Managing Director, Prof. Dr. Christian Thorun, introduced the consumer perspective to the discussion.
