Workshop “The Future of Ownership Research”

In July 2017, m.core (Institute for Marketing & Consumer Research, Department Marketing) hosted an interdisciplinary workshop on ownership research. Over 40 experts from 14 countries and various disciplines followed the invitation of the international co-chairs (Bernadette Kamleitner and Monika Koller, WU Vienna; Joann Peck, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Stephan Dickert, Queen Mary University of London) and came to WU Vienna to discuss conditions, manifestations and consequences of “ownership” and related concepts such as possession, entitlement, territoriality and sharing.

Topics covered ranged from endowment effects to psychological ownership in employment contexts and feelings of ownership instigated by marketing measures.
