Claustre Obert discusses today about the ‘gig’ economy at La Nau

  • February 28th, 2017

‘Gig economy, Collaborative, sunken or trend?’ is the subject of the round table that will be held today Tuesday, 28 February, at 19:00 in Aula Magna of the Cultural Centre La Nau, within the series ‘Claustre Obert’, organised by the Universitat de València and the newspaper ‘Levante-EMV’. The entrance is free but there is a limited number of places.

Experts in the university, legal and new business models area will discuss about the forms of economy aroused from the new technological environment.

In recent times, phenomena such as the boom of the vacation rental in houses that compete with hotels, or platforms that link passengers with drivers to make short trips, has revealed how the new business models are questioning the traditional sectors. And also its impact on the human factor, with new recruitment procedures and the track of the scarcity. 

The round table is composed of Francisco González Castilla, president of the Commission for the Protection of Competition of the Region of Valencia; Manuel Giner, founding partner of the platform for touristic apartment rent Muchosol; Amparo Cervera, full university professor of Marketing of the UV and researcher; José Luis Monzón, director of IES of the Universitat de València and chair of the new board of the Association of Economists, and Alberto Aznar, lawyer of the office of Pedrós Abogados and specialist in the case of the transport platform Blablacar.  The debate will be moderate by José Luis García Nieves, journalist and member of the economy section of the daily Levante-EMV. 

The audiovisual file with the recording of the conference can be found in the Canal Cultura of the Televisión Universitat (
