2018 Conference 
"Advances in the Analysis of Competition Policy and Regulation"
Friday 29th June - Sunday 1st July, 2018

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 a limited number of high quality papers to be presented and discussed in detail. A second objective is to provide a forum for economists and legal experts to meet and exchange ideas.

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.
