Abstract: This research has benefited from the financial participation of the DARES (Ministry of Labor, Employment and Integration), as part of a research program on the collaborative economy, jointly organized by the DREES (Ministry of Solidarity and Health) and the DARES as part of the call on the topic "Forms of collaborative economy and social protection". The TAPAS program is led by Corinne Vercher-Chaptal, CEPN - Centre d'économie et de gestion (UMR CNRS 7234) of the University of Sorbonne Paris Nord. It gathered a multidisciplinary research team (management, economics, sociology and law), which includes field actors. The program benefits from a partnership with the Plateformes en Communs (PEC) group of the association La Coop des Communs. The TAPAS program aims to deepen the distinction between "platform companies" and so-called "collaborative" or "alternative" platforms. While the former are characterized by vertical governance and the appropriation of most of the value created by the platform manager, alternative platforms are organized in a more horizontal manner and distribute bundles of rights over the resources created, according to the sharing rational of the commons. They participate to a field do action that is likely to emancipate itself from purely commercial principles in order to better address the imperatives of social and environmental sustainability, by mobilizing a plurality of economic principles and by creating links with the initiatives of the digital commons and the social and solidarity economy. The empirical study is based on nine in-depth case studies: CoopCycle, France Barter, Framasoft, Mobicoop, Oiseaux de Passage, Open Food France, SoTicket, Tënk. The corresponding monographs are integrated in the TAPAS collection available on HAL. The analyses conducted by the team aim to provide information on the characteristics and conditions of development of these alternative platforms (in terms of economic models, governance and work) which, through the solutions and innovations they bring, can foreshadow the evolution of innovative practices and regulations.
