We invite academics and PhD students in business schools studying platforms to join us for a panel discussion on hot topics regarding platform competition followed by virtual small table discussions with leading platform academics and former government agency senior leadership from antitrust agencies to discuss research gaps and their application to platform policy debates on competition and privacy.
We are looking to create an environment that encourages research of hot topics in platforms that might be relevant to broader policy.
Please feel free to forward this event information to colleagues, friends, and PhD students. We will provide the virtual meeting link to confirmed registrants closer to the event date.Please use this link to register: https://platformtech2020.eventbrite.com
