Sharing Cities Sweden will organize a launch event on 23 April 2018 as part of Sustainability Week at Lund University. The event will bring together the test-beds, national node and partners to present the early stages and ambitions for Sharing Cities Sweden.
Sharing Cities Sweden
Sharing Cities Sweden aims to put Sweden on the map as a country that actively and critically works with the sharing economy in cities. The objectives of the program are to develop world-leading test-beds for the sharing economy in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Umeå as well as develop a national node to significantly improve national and international cooperation and promote an exchange of experience on sharing cities.
Sharing Cities Sweden will develop world-leading test-beds for the sharing economy in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Umeå. Through test-beds, sharing services and digital solutions will be developed. The opportunities and risks of the sharing economy will be tested and evaluated.
Sharing Cities Sweden will establish a national node to significantly improve national and international cooperation and promote an exchange of experience on sharing services. The test-beds will be supported by a national node for coordination, national learning and international exchange.
