2017 Conference 
"Advances in the Analysis of Competition Policy and Regulation"
Friday 30th June - Sunday 2nd July, 2017

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.

CRESSE 2017 Conference Keynote Speakers: Prof. Louis Kaplow (Harvard Law School) and Prof. Carl Shapiro (University of California at Berkeley).
Special Keynote Lawyers’ Lecturer: William Kovacic (The George Washington University Law School).

The 12th CRESSE Conference will take place 30th June – 2nd July 2017, in OUT OF THE BLUE Capsis Elite Resort in Heraklion, Crete.  Please see also Accommodation and book your hotel as soon as possible as early July is an extremely high touristic period for Crete.
