The Florence Competition Programme (FCP) in Law & Economics - formerly known as ENTraNCE - focuses on competition law and economics. FCP is a new hub where European and international competition enforcers and other stakeholders can exchange ideas, share best-practices, debate emerging policy issues and enhance their networks. The project is directed by Professor Pier Luigi Parcu who is supported by a research team and a scientific committee of well known experts.
FCP carries out three types of activities:
By linking training, debate and research activity together with the presence and inputs of a varied community of scholars and practitioners, it creates a common cultural space where major scientific projects can be carried out.
Furthermore, since 2011 the Robert Schman Centre for Advanced Studies organizes a training for national judges in competition law and economics, ENTraNCE for Judges. The training programme is co-funded by DG Competition of the European Commission.
