Call for proposals 2014: Training of national judges in EU Competition Law and judicial co-operation

The deadline for submission of applications is: 29/08/2014

Priorities 2014

Projects should address at least one of the following areas:

  • a) Improvement of knowledge, application and interpretation of EU competition law;

    Projects should consist of training activities in the form of conferences, seminars, colloquia, meetings and symposia, as well as short or long term training courses on EU competition law. Projects under this priority should be more oriented on advanced trainings for national judges.

  • b) Support to National Judicial Institutions on Competition Law knowledge;

    Projects submitted under this category should be organised by one or more national judicial institutions - in particular as part of the initial training period of judges and prosecutors - with regard to the application of EU competition law. Projects under this priority should be more oriented to general trainings for national judges.

  • c) Improving and/or creating cooperation/networks;

    Projects should cover activities promoting the cooperation and/or networking between national judges, in particular between associations active in the field of the application of EU competition law.

    Projects may also cover the establishment, upgrading and/or interlinking of databases or web-based tools with EU cross-border relevance aiming to create or strengthen the cooperation and disseminate information among judges at national and European level.

Priority will be given to the three above mentioned aspects. In case of residual funding available the EU Commission may decide to award also projects focused on the following subject:

  • d) Development of legal linguistic skills of national judges;

    Projects should cover legal linguistic training activities linked to the specific terminology used in the application of competition law. Projects should consist of specific legal linguistic training activities in the form of short or long term training courses. The main goal of the projects should be the overcoming of the geographical/linguistic barriers to the benefit of the creation of a common European judicial knowledge.
