Cover Story (view full-size image): In recent years, the platform economy has been recognised by researchers and governments around the world for its potential to contribute to the sustainable development of society. Nonetheless, platform economy cases such as Uber, Airbnb, or Deliveroo have created a huge controversy for their socioeconomic impact, while other alternative models have been associated with a new form of cooperativism. In parallel, the United Nations are advocating global sustainable development by promoting Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), considering elements like decent work, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, and fostering innovation. This data descriptor departs from two 2020 European projects’ (DECODE and PLUS) data collections and presents the possibility to compare different platform economy models and their connections to the SDGs.
