From 14-16 May, Niels Philipsen visited the Centre for Business Law and Practice (CBLP) based at the Law School of the University of Leeds (UK). At the invitation of Prof. Pinar Akman (Director of CBLP) and Dr. George Zhou, he discussed possible forms of research cooperation between METRO and CBLP, and he also presented on 'The Role of Private Actors in Preventing Work-Related Risks' to an audience of staff members and PhD researchers associated with CBLP.
Several CBLP staff members expressed their interest in further cooperation with METRO in the areas of competition law, corporate law, and consumer law in the EU and UK, e.g. in the form of supervision of PhD researchers, joint research projects and research visits. We look forward to making this happen!
