Competition Law and Future Technologies

On 16 and 17 June 2023, the first edition of the “Nachwuchstagung Junges Kartellrecht” was held in Munich on the topic of competition law and future technologies. Franziska Guggi discussed possible effects of data-driven competition law enforcement on the alleged parties’ rights of defence. She advocated for the use of transparent and comprehensible data-driven tools to avoid black boxes. In addition to the fantastic presentations by the other participants, a major highlight was Philip Marsden’s keynote on the question “What if competition law was easy?”.
