Project Details


The aim of the project is to give national judges a detailed knowledge of key issues in competition law (antitrust rules, state aid control and private enforcement and application of antitrust rules to regulated industries) as well as the practical usefulness of those subjects, allowing national judges to apply correctly EU law. More cooperation between national judges from different Member States concurs to the effectiveness of EU law. In addition, in times of some skepticism about the European project, efficient justice systems are necessary to improve the trust of citizens and businesses in the functioning of a State and its institutions. The course aims to share research and knowledge among national judges and prosecutors from Portugal, Spain and Poland. Spain judges will benefit from the fact that the course is given in a country which is close geographically and in terms of language. Polish judges benefit from the fact that the university has several protocols with polish universities and research centres and has developed for several years competition research project with those institution and can benefit from the cooperation with Polish experts.
