    Director TILEC

    "TILEC’s main purpose is to organize interdisciplinary academic events related to the governance of economic activity in the digital age. It serves as a platform of exchange, especially between lawyers and economists. TILEC also strives to support policy-relevant, well-founded research of its members and to connect TILEC members with other researchers and decision makers in politics, firms, public agencies, and society at large. I am very grateful to be connected to this globally renowned research center, which has attracted attention from highest-level policy makers, judges, regulators and academics. Truly interdisciplinary research is the unique feature of the Center: it enriches a scholar's life to see different perspectives on a "well known" subject, and it keeps us humble and awake to know that there is always somebody in the room who knows more. If you feel similarly, please do not be shy but get in contact with us!"
