The Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures is the annual event that brings together all the Areas of the Florence School of Regulation.
Next year’s FSR Annual Conference, which will take place on 10th and 11th June 2021, will focus on ‘Infrastructure Investment Challenges: reconciling Competition, Decarbonisation and Digitalisation’.
Investment has always been a challenge in the network industries. Since the 1990s liberalisation has exacerbated this challenge, owing to the different time horizons between the interests of the private sector, the long-term nature of the infrastructure assets and their public service nature. Climate change and the need to decarbonise the infrastructures, as well as the recent focus on digitalisation have only added to the investment challenges in the different network industries.
How can we ensure investments in the context of competition, decarbonisation and digitalisation? What should be the role of governments and that of the private sector? How should the right incentives be set? These are some of the questions that the 10th FSR Annual Conference will seek to discuss.
More precisely, we are looking for contributions, which cut across the different infrastructure sectors, especially in terms of investment opportunities. Contributions utilising multidisciplinary as well as interdisciplinary approaches to regulation are welcome. Papers linking academia and practice, as well as policy research papers are particularly encouraged.
The conference is intended for academics such as PhD students, PostDocs and Assistant/associate/full Professors, as well as academically minded practitioners.
The format of the FSR Annual Conference is unique, in that it favours quality over quantity:
