International expert meeting on the allocation of limited authorisations and grants

On 19 and 20 January 2012 Leiden University will host an international legal expert meeting on the allocation of limited authorisations and grants in the European member states.

The expert meeting is being organised by the Department of Constitutional and Administrative law of Leiden University and the VU University Amsterdam Centre for Law and Governance. About 60 experts from academia as well as legal practice in various European member states will attend the meeting.

The aim of this event is to compare national experiences with allocation systems and transparency issues, aspects of competition law (e.g. State aid), and legal protection with regard to the allocation of limited authorisations and grants. Particular attention will be paid to gambling licenses, CO2 emission permits, and radio frequencies. Sir Konrad Schiemann, judge at the Court of Justice of the EU, will be among the speakers.

A book will be published after the expert meeting with contributions from the speakers, the chairmen, and optionally from other participants. Dr. Paul Adriaanse, Prof. dr. Willemien den Ouden (associate professor and professor of constitutional and administrative law at Leiden University, respectively) and prof. dr. Frank van Ommeren (professor of constitutional and administrative law at VU University Amsterdam) will take care of the organization of the expert meeting, as well as of the editing of the book.
