Combining a focus on competition law and economics, the Florence Competition Programme is a hub where European and international competition enforcers and other stakeholders can exchange ideas, share best-practices, debate emerging policy issues and enhance their networks. The project is directed by Professor Pier Luigi Parcu who is supported by a research team and a scientific committee of well known experts. By linking training, policy debate and research activity together with the presence and inputs of a varied community of scholars and practitioners, it creates a common cultural space where major scientific projects can be carried out.
Since 2011 the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies has organised a training for national judges in competition law and economics, ENTraNCE for Judges. The training programme is co-funded by DG Competition of the European Commission.
