The Role of the Collaborative Economy in Scottish Tourism - your views are important

Wed 4 Oct 17

The collaborative economy (sometimes known as the ‘sharing economy’) connects individuals or communities via online platforms, thereby enabling the sharing or provision of goods and services, assets and resources without the need for ownership.

Scottish Enterprise is keen to understand the role that the collaborative economy plays in Scotland’s tourism sector today, and how this could  be strengthened for the benefit of Scotland as a tourism destination.

This study will also contribute to the evidence base for the Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy, set up by the Scottish Government earlier this year. For this reason, a wide range of stakeholders has been invited to participate in this survey.

Closing date: This survey will be available online until 17:00 BST on Sunday 8th October 2017. The results of this survey will be compiled in a report, which will be made publicly available in November 2017. 

Scottish Enterprise is undertaking this research in partnership with Toposophy Ltd. All responses given will be confidential and used only for the purposes of this research.
