SummaryData access appears as a key condition for innovation and public welfare in the digital economy. Designing an adequate regulatory framework is at the centre of the current research of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, which analyses the respective issues from an interdisciplinary perspective of law and economics. Against this backdrop, the Institute developed the scientific concept of the conference "Consumer Law Days 2019" held by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection.
