8th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures: Digital Platforms – The New Network Industries? How to regulate them?

- Network Industries

On 20 – 21st June 2019 the Florence School of Regulation hosted its 8th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures, the annual event coordinated by FSR-Transport, which brings together all FSR Areas.

This two-day conference gathered academics including PhD students, PostDocs and assistant/associate/full Professors, as well as academically minded practitioners for interactive thematic sessions aimed at identifying the key challenges of digitalisation for traditional network industries; discovering various regulatory approaches to platforms and determining benefit scenarios for consumers and to the platforms themselves.

FSR-Transport Director Matthias Finger concluded the conference by outlining three key takeaways, or ‘digitalisation’ discourses, which emerged from the discussions, namely:

  • Digitalisation as an enabler to liberalisation
  • Consumer protection and welfare as key considerations in digitalisation regulation
  • Digitalisation as a new ‘infrastructure’ itself

We would like to thank all participants for travelling to Florence and contributing to a lively debate.

In the meantime, we are happy to announce that the 9th edition of the Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures will focus on ‘Sector Coupling’ and will take place on 25-26th June 2020 in Florence. Keep an eye on the FSR-Transport website for further information in the coming months.
