  • Thu 21 Jun 2018 09.00 - 18.00
  • Fri 22 Jun 2018 09.00 - 13.00
  Add to Calendar 2018-06-21 9:00 2018-06-22 13:00 Europe/Paris 7th Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures: New Network Structures: Decentralization, Prosumers and the Role of Online Platforms

SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE Simone Borghesi | EUI, Part-time professor, Energy & Climate Area of the FSR. University of Siena, Professor Matthias Finger | EUI, Part-time professor and Director of the Transport Area of the FSR. EPFL, Director of the Chair of Management of Network Industries Jean-Michel Glachant | EUI, Robert Schuman Chair, Director of the FSR, Director of the Energy & Climate Area of the FSR, Holder of the Loyola de Palacio Chair Pier Luigi Parcu | EUI, Part-time professor, Director of the Communications and Media Area of the FSR and ENTraNCE, Director of the CMPF Stéphane Saussier | EUI, Part-time professor and Director of the Water Area of the FSR. IAE de Paris, Professor and Director of the EPPP Research Group The de- and re-regulation of the different network industries is an on-going process at both the national and global levels. As this process unfolds, ever new phenomena emerge, necessitating a constant reassessment of the content and objectives of regulation. The rapidly evolving Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have significantly challenged the traditionally stable landscape of infrastructure services provision. The new data layer over the traditional infrastructure and service layers is transforming network industries: online platforms create new indirect network effects, they allow new service providers to enter the market (prosumers, sharing economy providers, etc.), and they challenge the central role of traditional infrastructure managers/service providers as entities ensuring the coordination of the sectors. Offering traditional and new services in an innovative way is a growing trend among public authorities, traditional providers as well as new private operators, prosumers and platforms. However, together with great opportunities, disruptive innovations also give rise to new regulatory challenges, especially when it comes to infrastructure financing and the coordination of operations. This 7th Florence Conference on the Regulation of Infrastructures aims at taking stock of the major challenges infrastructure regulation is currently facing as a result of technology, indirect network effects, newly emerging network structures (decentralized networks, distributed networks, sharing economy), and new actors (prosumers, OTTs, platforms, etc).
