The Annual Training provides participants with an advanced state-of-the-art overview of the main issues concerning the application of competition law and economics and State aid rules. Participants benefit from a unique learning platform where different stakeholders can work together to build a common enforcement culture in the field of competition across Europe and beyond. The Annual Training is held every year from September to April. It includes both an intensive residential segment held at the EUI campus in Florence, and e-learning activities organised via an ad-hoc online platform. The intensive residential part is composed of 50 + hours of lectures divided in 3 blocks, each one lasting 2.5 days (i.e. from Thursday to Saturday morning).
These are specific training courses organised upon the request of National Competition Authorities or private companies supporting the Florence Competition Programme activities. For these courses, the structure and the focus of the training are decided jointly.
Multi-disciplinary: our experts involve lawyers, economists, engineers, data and computer scientists.
Flexible: in terms of format, length and intensity as well as place of delivery (residential in Florence or at our client’s premises, online or both).
The Autumn School is an advanced course on recent developments in competition policy in Europe, the USA and the rest of the world.
The course is designed for mid-career professionals, including in-house counsels, lawyers, economists, officials of competition authorities, academics, advocacy officers, and journalists with at least 5/10 years of working experience in the field. Besides the advanced learning experience, the School stimulates networking among the participants both in class as well as during social activities in Florence and its world-famous Chianti surroundings.
