Platform Entrepreneurship in Europe: Which Business Models are Viable and Sustainable?

This event will be held in English

Global digitisation has enabled US platform companies to gain global reach and significant market power. This has led to “platformisation” in Europe: European firms, employees and consumers are exposed to institutional settings, digital infrastructures and competitive constraints that are created and shaped by a few private transnational platforms. Under these conditions:

How can European digital platform companies remain competitive?
How do national and EU regulations affect them?
How can platformisation be governed in order to achieve fairer results for European stakeholders?

This event is part of our two-year project Platform Alternatives, a cooperation between the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) and the Oxford Internet Institute (OII), with the support of Hans Böckler Foundation. Following a brief presentation of our preliminary findings, our panel of experts will discuss platform entrepreneurship in Europe and which sustainable platform alternatives European providers are able to offer.
