The paper identified several general dimensions to activate marketplaces development:
To operationalize the activation of transitions, the paper points at:
Further experimentation needs to address three layers:
Experimentation will require methods to measure the results of the experiments. Standardizing measures/indexes to monitor the evolution of and potential barriers caused by current market designs and financial structures is of considerable importance. Hence, the efforts in the design of indicators would need to address three dimensions:
