5th International Workshop on the Sharing Economy ‘Sharing Theories and Insights’

28.06.2018 09:00 - 29.06.2018 16:00 | Mannheim

Call for Contributions

We are delighted to invite academics, practitioners, representatives of civil society and everyone else who is interested in research on the sharing economy to Mannheim for the 5th International Workshop on the Sharing Economy.

Despite the undisputed progress in better understanding the sharing economy by mapping and systematizing different application areas, market orientations or types of consumption there is still a long way to go before we can close the gap between practical and theoretical development in the sharing economy. Hence, our aim is to bring together research and researchers from a wide variety of theoretical backgrounds and disciplines to encourage academic discourse on theorizing the sharing economy phenomenon by addressing the following questions:

  • How can existing theories and disciplines inform research in the sharing economy to better understand the practical phenomenon?
  • How can practical development in the sharing economy stimulate existing theories and trigger theory development?
  • How can contributions from different disciplines contribute to develop a holistic picture of the sharing economy?

Please note that fees are reduced if you contribute to the workshop. Deadline for submission of abstracts is March 31st. Invitations for presentation will be send until April 15th.
