The Competition and Regulation European Summer School (CRESSE) has established itself as the top academic summer event in the areas of Competition and Regulation Policy in Europe. Top quality instruction and excellent organisation, with a good atmosphere in beautiful surroundings and the opportunity to participate in a high quality Conference explain the very good ratings given by the participants of the twelve Summer Schools, that have been organised between 2006 and 2018.

The Summer School offers a unique opportunity for intellectual exploration in the summer. In eight distinct self-contained Modules of up to 16-hour duration each, it provides a comprehensive account of the most up-to-date developments in economic theory, empirical analysis and legislation in the policy areas of Competition and Regulation.
CRESSE also offers each year a number of Advanced Short Courses in specific topics of Competition Policy.

The CRESSE Lawyers Course on “The Role of Economics in Competition Law and Practice” has been established in 2014, and is targeted to lawyers, enforcers and judges working in competition law or any other field of law where the knowledge of economic theory is important. The course is taught by some of the foremost competition economists in the world. It covers both an introduction to microeconomics, game theory and industrial organisation theory, as well as, all the areas in the application of economics to competition policy.

Starting with the 14th Annual CRESSE, CRESSE will offer a new programme, co-organised with the OECD Competition Division, The Competition Agency Leaders Executive Programme (CALEP). The programme courses are taught by eminent competition professors, lawyers, economists and members of the OECD secretariat. The course is tailored to be an essential professional development opportunity and targeted to Heads of Competition Agencies, Commissioners, Board Members and Senior Officials (Directors General and other high-level officers) of Competition Agencies throughout the world. 

As a CRESSE participant, in the Summer School and in the Lawyers Course and in the Executive Programme (CALEP), you will join a vibrant community of motivated professionals from all over the world and distinguished faculty as you satisfy your intellectual curiosity. Further you can explore one of the most beautiful Greek resorts.         

A unique feature of CRESSE is the organization of an International Conference, in Competition and Regulation Policy, designed to bring together top economists and legal experts from Europe, USA and other countries. The CRESSE 2019 Conference on "Advances in the Analysis of Competition Policy and Regulation" will take place from July 5th to July 7th, 2019, in AMATHUS BEACH HOTEL, Rhodes, Greece.

On behalf of the
Conference and School Scientific Committee, the CRESSE Advisory Board, the CRESSE Summer School and Lawyers Course and Executive Programme (CALEP) Faculty and the CRESSE Associates I would like to invite you to examine our offerings and join one of Europe’s most stimulating academic environments for training in Competition and Regulation. We believe you will have a productive and rewarding experience.
