How should Europe address gatekeeping platforms?
On 19 February 2020, the European Commission will present its strategy to make Europe fit for the digital age. The Commission will launch a debate on possible adaptations of EU competition rules and the options for an ex-ante regulatory framework for gatekeeping platforms.
This CERRE Executive Seminar aims to contribute to this debate on the basis of a new report written by Prof. Alexandre de Streel (University of Namur & CERRE) and Peter Alexiadis (Partner, Gibson Dunn & Visiting Professor, Kings College London) on 'Designing an EU Intervention Standard for Digital Gatekeepers'.
This event will bring together representatives from national and European competition authorities, policy-makers, key industry players and academic experts.
