Training of national judges and judicial cooperation in the field of EU competition law

Since 2002, the Competition Directorate-General of the European Commission operates a subsidies program dedicated to the training of national judges in EU competition law and judicial cooperation between national judges. Approximately 120 projects have so far been co-financed, involving more than 7000 national judges.

Calls for proposals for projects under this program are published annually. Once new projects for training judges have been approved, details of the training programs are published below on this page.

Should you have any query in relation to training of judges in EU competition law, contact us.
