Nordic Competition Law Meeting, Helsinki University, 3-4 October 2013


Several members of our Research Group recently took part in the “Nordic Meeting of Researchers in Competition Law”, organized by the University of Helsinki (3-4 October 2013). The conference had three main competition law topics: The current national legal developments in competition law among the Scandinavian countries; law and economics, or the applicability of economic theory to legal decision making in competition law; and constitutional aspects of competition law decision making.


The Nordic Meeting also serves as a forum for Scandinavian researchers on Competition Law to present their current work. Several presentations were held on the basis of pre-submitted papers, including by two members of our Research Group: Post-doctoral Research FellowRonny Gjendemsjø (“Norwegian Competition Law Developments”) and Research Fellow Ignacio Herrera Anchustegui (“The Regulation of Monopsony and Buyer Power of Contracting Authorities subject to EU Public Procurement Law”).


The submitted papers for this conference are due to be published in the coming months by the University of Helsinki.


At the meeting it was also announced that the venue for the 2014 Nordic Meeting will be the University of Copenhagen.
