Round Table : Competition and regulation in digital markets (In French) - Amphi 2
Chair : Frederic Marty, CNRS, GREDEG and Thierry Penard, AFSE

Digital markets raise numerous competition related issues. Their technological turbulences and disruptions lead to significant level of market power, often related to multi-sided market structures. In the same time, the rise of digital economy leads to the apparition of new research objects for economists such as the algorithms-based economy, the effects of artificial intelligence, and the role of social networks in information flows.

Financial and insurance industries are highly regulated. The main objectives of this regulation is to ensure transparency and improve financial stability. However, rules, norms and regulatory requirements may be mutually inconsistent and give rise to adverse incentives.

Round Table : New challenges for regional development policies (In French) - Amphi 2
Chair : Catherine Baumont, Université de Bourgogne and Flora Bellone, UCA, GREDEG

The current technological change and globalization waves seem to be biased in favor of some areas and in de-favor of others. The resulting increasing economic and social divides between core and peripheral areas raise new challenges for regional development policies and call for designing specific actions at different spatial scales: regions, cities or industrial clusters.

Round Table : The challenges of the energy transition (In French) - Amphi 3
Chair : Katheline Schubert, Université Paris 1, PSE

The concept of energy transition refers to the transition from an economy primarily using dirty fossil energies to an economy primarily using clean renewable energies. The transition must be done because of climate change. However, the transition is complex and costly. This round table aims at discussing the economics of transition, that is the conditions under which the transition can indeed takes place, the economic policies which would help it to happen and which should accompany it. The case of Germany, a pioneer country in terms or energy transition will be discussed as well as the case of Asean countries.
