FSR Annual 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, coordinated by FSR Transport. It takes an interdisciplinary look at the most recent developments and future challenges for the network industries, covering energy, transport, water and communication sectors.

Dating back to 2012, the Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructure Industries, is today an annual event, which has grown and established itself as a point of reference for scholars and stakeholders all over the world. The best papers are published in the Journal Competition and Regulation in Network Industries (SAGE), whose editor-in-chief is Prof. Matthias Finger.

The 10th edition of the Conference, held on 10th and 11th June 2021, focused on the topic of ‘Infrastructure Investment Challenges: reconciling Competition, Decarbonisation and Digitalisation’. Learn more here.
