The ESPON activity “Stocktaking and assessment of typologies of Urban Circular Collaborative Economy initiatives” resulting from this call for tenders is assigned to Specific Objective 2 of the ESPON 2020 Cooperation Programme. As such, it shall support stakeholders in taking up territorial evidence in their policy development. The service shall contribute to better understand how the ‘Collaborative Economy’ (also known as the ‘sharing economy’) is being implemented in different EU cities and how it is influenced by regulations at different levels of government, from the local, to the national and the EU. The main objective is to identify and categorize different types of implementation, approaches and strategies to enable other cities to learn from those who are taking the lead as well as develop a ‘common language’ across Europe. The project will also provide recommendations on how the Collaborative economy can be better understood, communicated, shared, and implemented across Europe.
