The Scottish Government’s response to the report of the Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy

The Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy was formed in April 2017. The Panel’s purpose was to provide advice and expertise to ongoing policy development on the collaborative economy and to make recommendations to Scottish Ministers on how Scotland can position itself to take advantage of the many opportunities of the collaborative economy. The Panel also considered how Scotland could overcome any regulatory, economic and social challenges. This report sets out the Scottish Government’s response to the Panel’s recommendations. It outlines how we will build on our current actions in areas such as peer to peer accommodation, workers’ rights, crowd-funding, regulation and consumer protection to fulfil our ambitions for Scotland. Delivering wider public and social value is at the heart of our vision for Scotland’s collaborative economy. The Scottish Government’s new ShareLab Scotland fund will support organisations to develop and test collaborative platforms that deliver social and economic benefits to individuals and communities in Scotland.
