NCIS' Christoph Lutz was part of the first meeting of the newly founded COST Action CA16121 "From Sharing to Caring: Examining Socio-Technical Aspects of the Collaborative Economy" as one of two management committee members for Norway. The meeting took place on the 24th of March in Brussels. 

The management committee consists of researchers and practitioners dedicated to understanding the sharing economy in Europe better. Over the next four years, the COST Action members will meet regularly, exchange their experiences and conduct practice-centered research on the topic. A central goal is the construction of a central repository with case studies from each country in order to understand local initiatives in a comparative manner. Moreover, the members of the COST Action will engage in joint publications and outreach activities within smaller working groups.
