Academic Programme

‘Competition law is law that promotes or seeks to maintain market competition by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies’ – Martyn D. Taylor ‘International Competition Law: a New Dimension for the WTO?’ (2006 Cambridge University Press)


DAY 1 – Introduction

  • Introduction – A preview of the week’s academic programme will be given by the lecturers which will ensure basic knowledge among the participants for the upcoming week.

DAY 2 – Competition Law in Europe

  • We will have a closer look at how European competition law promotes the maintenance of competition within the European Union by regulating anti-competitive conduct by companies to ensure that they do not create cartels and monopolies that would damage the interests of society.

DAY 3 – Case Study from an Industry Sector

  • After looking into and learning a lot of background information and basic knowledge, we will have a look into a case study and we will attempt to get a practical understanding of the topic.

DAY 4 – Innovation and IP Law

  • Generally put, ‘innovation’ is the development of a new idea and putting it into practice. We will have a look at the combination of this, IP Law and of course how this fits with IP Law.

DAY 5 – Digital Markets

  • Next we will have an even deeper look and go a step further. How do digital markets play into all of this?


The topics are subject to change and the list of speakers will be available soon.
