The Lear Competition Festival (LCF) is a hub that brings together exciting learning and networking opportunities for the antitrust community.

Welcome to the Lear Competition Festival (#LCF), where learning and networking opportunities converge to create a dynamic hub for the antitrust community. This four-day international event builds on the success of the Lear conferences and aims at emphasizing the crucial role of economics in competition policy, to help competition authorities and courts make better decisions.

At the LCF, you will have the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge discussions with leading experts on emerging tools for competitive analysis and on the ever evolving challenges that antitrust practitioners face; to immerse yourself in in-depth dialogues on leading international cases; and to discover advanced academic contributions in the fields of competition law, economics and policy.

The LCF has established itself as an annual gathering that has fostered valuable connections and synergies among its participants and partners. Whether you are looking to become a Partner or are interested in sponsoring and promoting this event, the LCF provides packages tailored to suit each specific requirement.

Additionally, the Lear Competition Festival provides valuable opportunities for inspiring and addressing the aspirations of the next generation interested in pursuing professional or academic careers within the field of antitrust and regulation. It includes:

  • the Young Talent Competition Award (#YTCA) an initiative that invites young economists and lawyers to submit their research proposals, which will be rigorously evaluated and selected by a distinguished commission before presenting them at the LCF;
  • the Poster Session, providing students and researchers with a platform to showcase their research findings to our participants through the use of printed posters during the first day of the LCF;
