Conference: Law and Economics of the Digital Transformation

Digitization is the process of changing data from analogue to digital form. Digitalization refers to enabling or improving processes by using digital technologies and digitized data. Digital transformation, finally, is the transformation of the economy and society by Digitalization.

The aim of this conference is to analyze from a law and economics perspective – both theoretically and on the basis of concrete applications – some of the issues the digital transformation raises across the law. The contributions will be published in an edited volume.
