Last week participants from all over the world took part in the 7th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures. 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). Altogether 19 papers were presented, covering the following infrastructure sectors: communications and media, energy and climate, transport and mobility, and water distribution.
The best paper of the conference was unanimously chosen the work by Vanrykel,F., Ernst, D., Bourgeois, M. ”Fostering Share&Charge through proper regulation”.
We would like to thank all participants for coming to Florence and taking active part in the discussions.
You can find the final programme of the conference and the collection of the abstracts on the related webpage.
We are looking forward to meeting everyone at the 8th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures on June 20 and 21, 2019 when we will discuss the Digitalization and new network industries here in Florence.
