Please join the Center for Research in Sustainability (CRIS) at Royal Holloway University of London for a day of cutting edge discussions on the future of the sharing economy.

Panelists consist of the top interdisciplinary scholars working in this field, who will pull from their chapters in the newly published Handbook of the Sharing Economy (Edward Elgar) to debate key aspects of the sharing economy such as trust, reputation and public policy implications. The day ends with prominent sharing economy executives sharing their latest initiatives and insights. There will be plenty of opportunity for attendees to participate in the discussions and to network with each other, including at a drinks reception at the end of the day.
