With its research agenda, the newly 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.
