Competition Law in Conversation

The Competition Law in Conversation series is a joint project by the Competition Law and Digitalization Group at the Vienna University of Economics and Business, and the Chair in International Antitrust Law at the University of Graz. The aim of the series is to provide a forum dedicated to discussing current issues that are of interest to the wider competition law community. It wants to provide an opportunity to engage in a discussion from a transnational point of view and make the best of the new culture of online webinars. The hope is that each single conversation in the series will shape and contribute to the broader debates that we lead in competition law. Let’s start the conversation!
