Support study begins
The European Commission has contracted a consortium of four organisations to implement a study to support the Observatory on the Online Platform Economy. These organisations are: PPMI (the lead partner), Open Evidence, RAND Europe and the German Economic Institute (IW).
The purpose of the study is to gather data and carry out multi-disciplinary analysis of emerging issues including, but not limited to: data access and ranking algorithms, price-parity clauses in online platforms, as well as the further evolution of national regulatory and policy approaches to online platforms.
The study will support the work of the expert group for the Observatory on the Online Platform Economy, as well as maintaining an online website that will serve as an interface between stakeholders, the expert group and the Commission.
