The sharing econmy, also known as collaborative consumption or peer-to-peer, is a concept that put foward the ability of people to rent or borrow things and services rather than buy and keep them for themselves. The sharing economy has become possible thanks to the Internet, which allows fast communication between people and makes mobile payment possible. The growth in the number of mobile applications and online platforms that connect people who have underused things with people who want to use them has enabled the owner to sell goods and services that were previously provided by companies, such as airbnb, which competes with the hotel industry. The term "sharing economy" is somewhat ambiguous and has led to a debate on the limits of this concept, especially for personal services such as uber.

How do markets change and develop over time? The present PhD project focuses on the dynamic effects of market change in the context of the sharing economy. This phenomenon is of particular interest since it concerns how alternative market forms — such as gifting, collaborating, accessing — are challenging established market conceptions. Empirically, the project addresses emerging shared mobility platforms ride sharing, car sharing, etc. By turning the infamous conceptual confusion that surrounds the sharing economy into a topic in its own right, the individual studies address a number of issues related to the formation and change of markets in ambiguous environments.
