4) To analyse and evaluate experience with collaborative consumption and the attitude of the younger generation – students at the University of Pardubice towards this phenomenon.

5) To identify possible forms, or even examples of good practice in B2B (Business-to-Business) sharing.

6) To comprehensively assess the economic, social and environmental benefits and risks of application of principles of collaborative economy with respect to the specifics of the Czech Republic and to formulate recommendations which will contribute towards development of collaborative economy, both for interested parties and also for governmental regulatory institutions.
