In 2020, Lear Conference changes format proposing an innovative international event, where competition law and economics issues will be discussed at all levels.

The Lear Competition Festival is a unique event in the antitrust field, which gives the opportunity to: deepen knowledge on specific antitrust issues; discuss the interrelation between competition and regulation; acquire new tools for the economic and legal analysis; discuss the best methodologies to assess the effectiveness of public policies, network with key and relevant actors of the antitrust panorama (e.g. competition authorities, firms, IFIs, economists and lawyers).

Precious synergies can arise from the collaboration between the different actors in the system and the partners adhering to the event.

Over the three-day festival, there will be debates on new tools and issues, discussion of selected international cases, academic contributions on topics, models and theories of competition law and economics, policy and regulations.

The LCF has the new feature of serving also as a recruiting event, where young talents and organizations can meet each other thanks to the innovative tailor-made platform Talent4Comp.
