It’s a great pleasure to announce our next guest in our invited lecture series “Beyond the Patterns”.

Abstract: European competition law prohibits the coordination of economic decisions among market participants, esp. price fixing. Information exchange or even unilateral advance communication of prices may amount to such an illegal collusion. The lecture gives a brief introduction to the rules against coordinated behavior and explains the difference between a coordinated behavior based on information exchange and a legal parallel behavior based on available information.
