The purpose of this project is to conduct periodic seminars, whose speakers shall be, preferably, scholars – doctoral students or professors – involved in researches concerning themes as industrial organization or quantitative methods applied to competition issues.

Specialists acquainted with antitrust practices, such as former commissioners, might also be invited to join the seminars. The event also intends to enable CADE’s staff on economic issues applied to antitrust policy and to disseminate the importance of economic analysis to the practice of competition defense.

The project is therefore in accordance with CADE’s Department of Economic Studies institutional mission, which is “to contribute to the generation of technical and practical knowledge as well as of the academic production, for itself or for third parties, on issues related to competition defense”.

The materials here are available only in Portuguese.
