    Over the last decade, platforms have become an indispensable form of economic transactions in many industries and attracted attention from academic scholars and policymakers alike. In this symposium, we bring together a group of panelists to share their insights on how platforms can design and implement efficient strategies to foster engagement and cooperation among third-party participants (i.e., users and complementors). The panelists come from diverse theoretical perspectives and employ diverse methodologies. By sharing recent advances and ongoing research in the field, this symposium aims to advance our understanding on how platforms can build and sustain their competitive advantages by influencing and leveraging their participants.
