Alongside the fabulous Coworking and Coliving Conference in Serbia Bernie talked with Johanna, co-founder of the Coworking Library. Johanna has been involved in Coworking research for the past 9 years and shared some insights to the non-profit project by the German Coworking Federation e.V., Deskmag and included.co.
Check out the Coworking Library here: https://coworkinglibrary.com/
It is an open platform to share or find any research about coworking and collaborative workspaces including papers, books, chapters in books, conference papers, research projects (Phd, MA or above), market reports and other studies. It is searchable and has an English abstract for each entry.
You can submit any research you come across directly into the database: https://coworkinglibrary.com/submit-a-publication/
Johanna also organizes a meetup for researchers in November during the peak of the coworking conference season:
Researchers’ Meetup Warsaw edition: 13 November 2019, 6 pm
(after the main program of Coworking Europe Conference 2019)
After the successful launch of the new version of the Coworking Library with a new partner on board last year in Amsterdam, the tradition of having an event dedicated to all coworking research shall continue. The goal is to bring together all active researchers inside and outside of the Coworking Europe Conference (no conference ticket needed to join our event).
The program will be announced soon. Places will be limited.
