Digital Economy Summer School

The digital revolution is gradually changing our daily life, as well as, the economy. The Digital Economy Summer School will deal with some of the challenges that regulators and policy makers face due to this technological revolution. The program targets advanced undergraduate and graduate students, researchers and practitioners that want to understand how the so-called new economy works.

The courses will be taught by leading experts in different areas of digital economy and we will emphasize practical applications and discussion of policy relevant problems.
