CRESSE Summer School on Competition Policy and Regulation

Who does it target?

The Summer School is designed for professionals working in the wider areas of Competition Policy and Network Industry Regulation, in:

  • Competition Authorities and Regulatory Bodies
  • Economic or Law Consultancies
  • Private and Public firms and organizations affected by interference in the form of sectoral regulation or antitrust and merger policies
  • Ministries or International Organizations
  • Postgraduate (and Doctoral) students specializing in specific Competition and Regulation topics that wish to be provided with a comprehensive account of the most up-to-date developments in economic theory, empirical analysis, legislation and policy in these areas
  • Those interested in competition economics who, while already trained at postgraduate level in microeconomic theory and industrial organization, may have had limited opportunity for focused study in the field

The School provides a comprehensive account of the most up-to-date developments in economic theory, empirical analysis, legislation and policy in the areas of Competition and Regulation. Participants of the Summer School join a vibrant community of motivated students from all over the world and a distinguished international faculty.

Objective of the Summer School

The CRESSE Summer School is taught by some of the foremost experts in the world. The aim of the Summer School is to familiarise participants with the new economic literature and with the methods used to assess business practices in the context of Competition Law. It also aims to establish a clear link between the new theories and the day-to-day work of practitioners. This enables participants to face and answer difficult questions in an economically and legally informed manner, about practical issues they come across in their work.
