E.CA Competition Law & Economics Expert Forum
5th E.CA Expert Forum
31 May 2017 in Brussels
This conference offers insights into recent developments in competition law and economics with a special focus on market definition for merger and antitrust purposes. This year, the EU Notice on Market Definition marks its 20th anniversary. We will take this opportunity to review some of the “classic” methods and issues related to market definition and look ahead at new questions arising in the era of fast-moving digital markets and two-sided platforms.
The preliminary programme is available here.
