FSR Transport organises academic events and conferences with a focus not only on transport modes but also on related areas such as energy and information technology. FSR Transport assists with the organisation of external conferences related to regulatory practice and governance of network industries.
Academic Events and Seminars
Academic Seminars are organised by FSR Transport and aim to look in-depth at different aspects, causes and consequences of the regulation of network industries. Members of the FSR Transport Scientific Committee present their work and engage in discussion with graduates and researchers from all over the world.
The latest academic seminar took place in the occasion of the presentation of the book “The Routledge Companion to Network Industries” (Thursday, June 23rd).
FSR Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures
The Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures is a yearly event with the involvement of the four areas of the Florence School of Regulation and coordinated by FSR Transport. It aims to take an interdisciplinary look at the most recent developments and future plans for network industries, with a comprehensive look at the transport, energy and communication sectors. Started in 2012 with the Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructure Industries, this annual event has grown and is now a point of reference for scholars and stakeholders all over the world.
Over the years, industry experts and knowledgeable academics, from senior academics to junior researchers, have been participating in academic events organised by FSR Transport. More than 100 individuals have presented their research at one of the academic events in Florence since 2011.
