Invitation to tender - Analysis of new opportunities in the platform economy

  • Published 23/05/2018
Nordic Innovation is seeking a consultant that will analyse new ways of organizing work and novel opportunities for economic growth and innovation in the Nordics.

The Nordic region is in the forefront of technological development, but new ways of organising work by using platforms are being used to a limited extent because they violate existing regulations and perceptions of how work should be organized. This new window of opportunity should be explored further and be taken advantage of. Authorities and labour organizations therefore need to look at how new forms of organising work can be facilitated and promoted.

 

ANordic Innovation we build our work on a joint four-year Nordic co-operation programme for business and innovation policy, where digitalisation and new green business models (e.g. sharing and platform economy) have a strong priority.
Currently we are developing an initiative on the platform economy. The overall objective (see Appendix C) is that the platform economy will contribute to making the Nordic region a leading region for sustainable growth, and increase entrepreneurship, innovation and competitiveness in the Nordic region, which is also the main purpose of Nordic Innovation.

We are looking for  consultants that will conduct an analysis to identify bottlenecks, possible solutions,  and opportunities for the platform economy in each of the Nordic countries, with a specific focus on the role of the knowledge-intensive labour market/learning workers. The background analysis (statistics about e.g. size, structure and actors) and fact-finding should be based on existing research.
