20th June – 1st July 2022

The 2022 edition of the Competition Summer Schools took place online between 20 June and 1 July 2022, and has been organised and led by DG COMP and the Project team in cooperation with the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium. This year’s programmes brought together (virtually) officials from the ASEAN Member States, China, India, and Korea.

On 20 June, participants from all the partner countries took part in a virtual visit to the European Commission Directorate-General for Competition. Ms Linsey McCallum, Deputy Director-General for Antitrust of DG Competition, gave an opening speech at the start of this virtual visit.

This year’s Competition Summer School programme has been designed to give participants specific insights into a number of new European Commission developments and the opportunity to explore the EU’s approach to a range of “hot topics” facing competition enforcers, including the role and contribution of competition law and policy in the context of the European Commission’s initiatives on the transition to the green economy, the digital economy, or the new European Digital Markets Act. As in previous years, presenters focused on aspects of these topics likely to be of most interest to the partner countries. The programme combined workshops and lectures with a mix of academics, practitioners and case officers from the European Commission and EU Member State competition authorities, panel debates between enforcers from Asia and Europe to discuss their experiences, keynote speeches and interviews.

The Competition Summer School enables exchanges of experiences, facilitates cooperation and coordination amongst the participating authorities, as well as increase and deepen the contacts with European officials and professionals.

The next Competition Summer School will take place between 26 June and 7 July 2023.
