The Digital Markets Act
Date: Friday 10 December 2021
Time: 12.00 – 13.30
The Institute of European Law welcomes you to a seminar on the topic "The Digital Markets Act: State of play and implications for competition law enforcement from a European and national perspective".
Seminar about the proposed Digital Markets Act (DMA) and its implications for competition law enforcement from a European and national perspective.
Michael König, Adviser on Platform Regulation and the Digital Markets Act at the European Commission, DG for Communications Networks, Content and Technology, Alvaro Garcia-Delgado Garcia, DG Competition, Official on Antitrust Case Support and Policy, and Marita Ljunggren, Second secretary, Single Market, Permanent Representation of Sweden to the EU, discuss the Digital Markets Act (DMA) and its implications for competition law enforcement from a European and national perspective.
The Digital Markets Act is one of the centrepieces of the European Union’s digital strategy and a key piece of legislation when it comes to the regulation of digital giants. What does the EU want to achieve with the DMA and how does it relate to its industrial and competition policy? How does the DMA support the pivotal goal of the digital transformation of the European economy? What do the Member States (esp. Sweden) and other key players want to achieve in the negotiations and how would the DMA affect national aspirations for emerging centra of digital innovation (e.g. Stockholm) in the future? How does the DMA interact with and support the application of Articles 101 and 102 TFEU and what could we learn from the recent General Court ruling in Google (Shopping)? What can we except in the coming months?
In this seminar, three leading experts with significant insight into the DMA share their views on the above and help us get up to speed on the current state of play in the negotiations.
