With its research agenda, the recently founded German Internet Institute dares a particularly ambitious form of interdisciplinarity. Both the research agenda and the group of applicants combine economic, social and political sciences, law, and computer science, and they develop research approaches and perspectives that are systematically linked to each other in the design of the individual research groups.
The research group FG 3 "Working and Cooperating in the Sharing Economy" is about the impact of business models and even non-commercial cooperations in the vast field of “sharing economy” - their history, the concepts behind them, the ideas. The results will build the foundation for predicting the development in the future: Who is responsible for what? What will be the impact on the working situation, the representation of different groups or partakers, the economic consequences, the legal situation? Do we need to plan ahead in lawmaking, taxation models, social insurance – and, if yes – what will it be we will have to do? All forecasts predict a drastic jump in the sharing economy within the next couple of years. And it is our duty to be prepared, to have the data and the models to give the ghost, that already left the bottle, the directions to benefit society instead of being just disruptive.
