We are excited to launch GRACE16 a Global Research on Augmented Collaborative Economy!

We're inviting leaders, researchers, thinkers & practitioners within the Coop sector like yourself,  to assess the cross-sector challenges & explore the way different Coops can work together in an Augmented Collaborative Economy. 

What if we evolved the nature of Cooperativism in a way that it reflects businesses that are smarter, faster, more productive and more connected?

The findings of the study will be presented on 11-13 October 2016, at the 3rd International Summit of Cooperatives in Quebec.

Our overall objective is to advance the management practice of Coops across industries, through practical and actionable insights and by better understanding the evolving role of Collaborative Economy within the Coop sector, while we explore topics including digitalisation, system dynamics, ecosystem economics and platform based business modelling.
