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.
The 2009 Conference will take place on the 3rd – 5th of July 2009, at KALLISTON GRECOTEL HOTEL (see Accomodation) which is located in the seaside resort of Galatas in Chania (Crete, Greece).
The 2009 CRESSE Conference Policy Lecture will be given by Professor Joe Harrington (John Hopkins University).
The J-J Laffont Lecture will be given by Professor Paul Klemperer (Oxford University).
For details on research subthemes and special policy-related sessions see Call for Papers.
The special sessions on Dynamic Efficiency and on the Commission’s Guidance Paper are co-organised with Prof. Damien Geradin and the Tilburg Law and Economics Center. The Conference Program will be finalized by May 2009.
