The Impact of Power on trust and cooperation in the field of sharing economy
In May the three-year project „Collaborative Consumption – Trust, power and cooperation“, funded by the Austrian Science Fund started at the Competence Center for Empirical Research Methods with Mag. Dr. Eva Hofmann as project leader. With collaborative consumption, consumers no longer own a good, but temporarily have access to this good. The aim is to investigate how power of authorities providing collaborative goods impact trust and cooperation in collaborative consumption and the sharing economy. A big variety of different studies are planned including focus groups, online questionnaires and experiments. Mag. Dr. Barbara Hartl, ao. Univ. Prof. Mag. Dr. Elfriede Penz, MAS, Eur. Ph.D., Sarah Marth, MSc and Mag. Thomas Sabitzer are part of the team. The project is a successor to the project "The impact of power of authorities on trust in authorities and consequences on tax cooperation" (http://poweroftaxes.univie.ac.at).
