2019 Conference 
"Advances in the Analysis of Competition Policy and Regulation"
Friday 5th July - Sunday 7th July, 2019

Plato and Aristotle

(Raffaello Sanzio, "The School of Athens")

CRESSE Conferences deal with Competition and/or Sectoral Regulation issues with emphasis on the policy relevance of recent research. The objective is to give the opportunity for high quality research papers to be presented and discussed in detail. A second objective is to provide a forum for academic economists, legal experts, policy makers and practitioners to meet and exchange ideas in panels that discuss important topical policy issues.

An important aspect of the Conference is the organisation of Round Tables with participants from academia but also from policy practice, regulated enterprises, the EU Commission etc.
