The 7th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures- Interviews with the Authors of the Best Papers are available
The 7th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures took place in Florence on June 21st and June 22nd, 2018. The 7th edition of the conference aimed at taking stock of the major challenges infrastructure regulation is currently facing as a result of technology, indirect network effects, newly emerging network structures (decentralized networks, distributed networks, sharing economy), and new actors (prosumers, OTTs, platforms, etc).
