Sharing

The sharing economy offers innovative solutions for sharing, renting and replacing under-utilized assets, often using digital platforms, visualization technology and ICT that informs about supply and demand.


The future of humanity is urban, and the nature of urban space enables, and necessitates, sharing of resources, goods and services, and experiences.

To meet challenges, communities, organizations, and local governments are increasingly turning to a basic human practice: sharing.

The sharing services that will be developed in the test-beds will relate to 1) utilization of spaces (premises, housing, green infrastructure, shared public space etc.) and 2) utilization of goods and services (tools, clothing, toys, handicrafts, etc.). Transport and mobility are included to a certain extent.

Sharing services should contribute to reduced energy and climate impact and sustainable development, but also promote social innovation and sustainability in the city. The sharing services should be innovative and contribute to a wide range of different types of services within the program.
