Throughout the course of this support study, we will track the evolution of the European digital platform economy. By the mid-2020, monitoring data will be presented in the form of a dashboard, which will be regularly updated. The dashboard will display a list of relevant indicators, such as the number, size, growth and business models of online platforms, and the number and characteristics of their business users. It will provide an overview of the platform economy, spanning different markets and sectors of economic activity, as well as providing information on specific issues (e.g. policy issues, rankings).
