The Initiative on the Sharing Economy sheds light on the growing trend away from the exclusive ownership and consumption of resources to one of shared use and consumption. Peer-to-peer shared mobility is a particular focus.
The Initiative on the Sharing Economy was established by the Center for Transportation Studies in partnership with Saif Benjaafar, Distinguished McKnight University Professor in the Department of Industrial & Systems Engineering, and other faculty members across the University of Minnesota and is administered by CTS.
