Conference on Corporate Governance in Network Industries
30./31. October 2013, Vienna, Austria
Network industries offer a highly interesting research area, as business operations generally need to account for both competition and regulation. Adequate performance is only reached by balancing economic efficiency and reasonable profits with public interests and investment needs. Especially the relationship between liberalization and regulation of monopolies and monopolistic bottlenecks dealing with public needs creates multi-disciplinary research questions related to corporate governance. In particular, market-orientated corporate governance mechanisms might not perfectly work in a partly monopolistic environment.
The conference intends to bring together academics, professionals, and representatives of governments and operators. The aim is to address key issues in network industries arising from the intersection of regulation and competition on the one hand and corporate governance on the other hand.
Thanks to the stimulating submissions we were able to compile an interesting preliminary program for the conference.
Owing to the sponsoring of the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU) the conference participation is free of charge. If you plan to attend the conference please fill out the registration form and send it per mail to CGNI@wu.ac.at.
