Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Events, events everywhere

The beginning of the academic year marks the beginning of class teaching but also the beginning of conferences. A few of them will definitely keep me as busy as I am at present with my lectures. As there is a chance that you might be interested in some of them, here is a summary of what is going on. We will of course be uploading the slides in due course.

A 2-in-1 trip to Florence (14 and 15 October): There is always a good reason to travel to Florence, even if, as this time, conferences will keep me busy most of the time. On Friday 14 October, I will be discussing innovation-related issues with Frédéric Jenny and Vincent Verouden at the EUI (ENTraNCE Annual Conference). The following Saturday, I will be speaking at the 20th Annual Conference of the IBA on a panel chaired by Kyriakos Fontoukakos and Julián Peña (see here for the programme).

Bruxelles: ma ville? I am far more often in Brussels than in my hometown of Madrid. As I love the city, this is never an issue. On 26 October, there is a morning briefing on Lundbeck organised by the Brussels School of Competition. The two other discussants are Luc Gyselen and David Hull. The event is open to everyone, so do not hesitate to sign up!

Other events: As Alfonso mentioned last month, Hart organises a conference on State aid with some luminaries of the field. There is also a bumper crop of events coming from ERA (see here, here and here). Last, but not least, my favourite co-blogger will be travelling to my city to discuss geo-blocking at the ITechLaw Annual Conference.
