About MaCCI

MaCCI is a joint initiative of the University of Mannheim and the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim. The major objective is to stimulate and disseminate research in the areas of competition, regulation and innovation law and policy, and to foster fundamental as well as applied theoretical and empirical economic and comparative law research. The research questions addressed within the framework of the ScienceCampus thus require close cooperation between economists and legal scholars. MaCCI strengthens the position of German jurisprudence in the European discourse and the practical relevance of economics.
