CAS: Platforms as Organizations - State of the Art and Wider Implications

Opening hours / Beginning:

21 June 2021 - 23 June 2021

The Center for Advanced Studies at LMU provides a forum for scientific exchange and discussion that bridges the divide between the established disciplines. Its activities are designed to promote all forms of collaborative research and to stimulate interdisciplinary communication within the University. In addition, it facilitates the integration of visiting scholars and scientists into the academic life of the University.

Platform businesses connect at least two sides, e.g. a buyer and a seller of a good or service, and have grown tremendously in importance in recent years. Indeed, platform business models form the basis of many household names in social media, ride-sharing, operating systems and much more. The organization of such platforms is especially interesting because much of the value of a platform is created by complementary actors (individuals or firms) outside of the control of the platform business. This creates interesting dynamics between platform and complementors, and between different platforms competing for the best complementors.

A Workshop led by Prof. Dr. Tobias Kretschmer (CAS Research Group/LMU).

The event will be conducted in English. For further information, see the CAS website.
