DIGI-GUARD Grant for project on procedural law and digitalization
An international consortium of nine partners that includes the Faculty of Law was awarded a € 562,951 grant from the European Commission’s DG-JUST to carry out DIGI-GUARD.
The project focuses on the intersection of procedural law and digitalization and seeks to improve online taking of evidence and online service of documents in international civil and commercial cases. The proposal received a final score of 83 out of 100, and reviewers called the project “very relevant” and “robust, feasible, and well-designed.”
The project started in June 2022 and will last until June 2024. The UM team is led by Marta Pertegás Sender.
