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:

- 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.
