Researcher Receives $10,000 Award in United States

Really good news for Sebastian Peyer, one of our Post Docs:

CCP Post Doctoral Research Fellow, Dr Sebastian Peyer, has been chosen as a Scholar-in-Residence by the Antitrust Law Section of the American Bar Association (ABA) and invited to undertake his competition policy research in Washington D.C. Applications for the inaugural award were invited from junior academics and recent Ph.D. students worldwide.

Dr Peyer will visit the United States for three months in spring 2013 to continue his research on private antitrust enforcement. During the visit he will interact with members of the U.S. antitrust community and participate in the annual ABA Antitrust Spring Meeting in Washington D.C. – the largest meeting of antitrust specialists worldwide. The Scholar-in-Residence-Programme will also enable him to establish contact with key federal agency personnel as well as a range of academics, lawyers, and consulting firms.

Sebastian commented “I am very delighted to receive the award. My research compares European and US private antitrust enforcement and I have an unique opportunity to undertake the US-related research in Washington D.C. . I am very much looking forward to engaging with the members and contacts of the ABA.”
