The College of Europe Development Office organized, in cooperation with Development Solutions Europe Ltd. as in 2018, three tailor-made summer schools on EU Competition law.

Each Competition Summer School (CSS) lasted two weeks and was designed to meet the training needs of three very different target groups of participants: Indian and Korean competition officials; ASEAN Member States and ASEAN Secretariat competition officials; Chinese officials from the State Administration for Market Regulation.

Each programme included a total of 53.5 hours of face-to-face courses (i.e. 160.5 hours of training in total) and a one-day study visit at DG Competition, European Commission. The CSS programmes followed a core common structure so as to offer to the three groups the opportunity to:

  • Enhance awareness and understanding of EU competition law and procedures with respect to State-owned enterprises and State aid control, among other topics; 
  • Deepen the knowledge on EU competition law and enable the establishment of new initiatives towards convergence in competition policy and enforcement between the EU and the participants’ respective jurisdictions;
  • Enhance interactions with representatives of the EU working on competition matters.

This activity was funded by the European Union and is part of the EU-Asia Competition Policy Cooperation project:
