NESTA: Making sense of the UK collaborative economy
September 2, 2014 9:00 am
September 2, 2014 11:30 am
Free, booking required
July 30, 2014
1 Plough Pl , London, EC4A 1DE, United Kingdom

Join NESTA for the launch of a new report that considers the progress and potential of the UK’s collaborative economy.

To coincide with the launch of Nesta and Collaborative Lab’s new report exploring the UK’s emerging collaborative economy, we will be welcoming a number of prominent figures operating in this space to discuss the collaborative economy in the UK.

The ways in which we consume, contribute and participate are changing. Amidst volatile markets and the rapid proliferation of digital technologies, a new swell of collaborative organisations and activities has emerged. The implications of these emergent models of exchange are significant for policy makers, entrepreneurs and for the public.

Join us for the launch of the report and a discussion as we consider some of the challenges and opportunities presented by the collaborative economy.

Details will follow in due course, but please keep this date free in your diary.

Registration and breakfast start at 9:00am with the event starting promptly at 9:30am. The event finishes at 11:30am.

There are only a limited number of tickets – to avoid disappointment register now.

This event forms part of The Unusual Suspects Festival, which is a four-day festival that will blend international expertise and innovation with local thinking and practice from across the UK and feature a collection of interlinked events that will draw out the ways in which collaboration and social innovation can work in sync- and ask how this can help address some of the most difficult issues we face in society today.

The Festival will take place in London during September 2-5, 2014 and is curated by the  Social Innovation Exchange, Collaborate and The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. For more information on the Festival including the events on offer, please see  #unusualsuspects
