Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 26 June 2018

To ask the Scottish Government when it will respond to the recommendations of the Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 1 August 2018

The Scottish Government's response to the report of the Scottish Expert Advisory Panel on the Collaborative Economy was published on 10 July 2018. The report can be accessed at http://www.gov.scot/isbn/9781788519809.

The First Minister announced the £172,000 ShareLab Scotland fund on 6 July 2018 which is one of a range of actions identified in the response to the recommendations from the panel’s report. The fund will help identify and support projects that use online matching to help individuals and communities make better and more sustainable use of local resources, and that will contribute to Scotland’s vision of a fairer, more socially responsible collaborative economy.
