Georgios Petropoulos was one of the speakers at workshop on collaborative economy organised by the Internal Market Committee (IMCO) of the European Parliament on November 8.
The focus of the workshop was the definition of, and distinction between, professional version non-professional/occasional provision of services, as well as the future of a regulatory framework for non-professional provision of services and prosumers. It included a debate about the new ways of providing services in the digital era and the need to effectively protect consumers.
Georgios Petropoulos presented some of the benefits of collaborative economy, and discussed issues related to regulation, types of services, and terms of the functioning of platforms that provide services.
