Professor Oksana Mont, Andrius Plepys, Yuliya Voytenko and Lucie Zvolska of the Urban Sharing team undertook mobile research lab (MRL) in London 12th-17th November 2017. The aim of the MRL was to observe, explore and experience the sharing environment in London.
In early April, the Urban Sharing team and a group of five Master's students descending on Berlin. Our goal: to embed, map, understand, investigate, probe, interview, experience, observe everything and anything relating to the sharing economy. So, over the course of five days, we conducted 20 interviews that ranged from sharing organisations, municipal agencies, NGOs, and professional associations.
As part of our ongoing research, in collaboration with students, we will host a workshop at Supermarkt Berlin exploring the above concept on April 6th from 13:00 - 16:00.
The team is well underway in planning the first of eight Mobile Research Labs. The first will take place in Berlin between April 3 - 8, 2017.
