At the opening ceremony before the workshop, Josef Drexl, Director at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, gave a lecture on "Marchés numériques, droit de la concurrence et développement éconmique" (Digital markets, antitrust law and economic development). The event was streamed live on the YouTube platform and is still available there.
With the foundation of the research group, UVS hopes that its own strategic orientation will be strengthened and that the first project is only the beginning of a long partnership between the two institutions, as UVS wrote on Twitter.
With the project "Access, Data Sharing and Sustainable Development Goals: Regulation of the Data Economy in Emerging Economies," the institute will work with partners from emerging economies to develop advice on designing the optimal regulatory framework for data sharing to promote sustainable development in countries in the global South. In addition to UVS, research partners include universities in India and Brazil.
