In memory of Prof. Michael A. Crew
The FSR C&M is organising, in collaboration with the CRRI Centre at the Rutgers Business School, the 25th Conference on Postal and Delivery Economics. This edition, that will be held in Barcelona May 24-27, 2017, will be dedicated to Professor Michael A. Crew, founding father and organiser of the Conference.
Keynote Speakers of the event:
- José María Marín-Quemada, President of the Spanish National Regulatory Authority, CNMC
- Harrie Temmink, Deputy Head of Unit of the Public Interest Services Unit – DG GROWTH – European Commission
This world leading Conference is open to academics, representatives from companies, regulatory authorities, public institutions, sector-specific associations and consultancies active in the postal and delivery eco-system. The aim of the event is to tackle the various crucial topics animating the debate in postal and delivery economics and regulation.
A book is planned, arising from the Conference. Authors of papers selected for the programme will be advised on the prospects of publication in the conference volume once an agreement is reached with a publisher.
