Work Programme: Digital Transformation

Working group "Digital platforms regulation"

This working group proposes to develop a common reflection, in order to develop an argued point of view on the regulation of digital platforms in the context of the current European (and American) debates.  In particular, it is a question of thinking about how to implement responsible governance while allowing for innovation. The question of the effectiveness of public action and its articulation with the constraints of competitiveness is also central.

Project "Digital Governance Challenge"

Digital technology tends to radically transform the capacities for processing and circulating information, and therefore for coordination. Transparent and ubiquitous access to information, just-in-time and adaptive information processing, and the use of algorithmic means are transforming the problems and capacities of collective governance. This group proposes to reflect on the questioning of traditional coordination mechanisms, including the State, and on the implications and requirements of a more reactive and decentralised governance adapted to societies characterised by more agile and personalised coordination modes.

Project "Governance and Regulation of the Metaverse"

This research project aims to gain a better understanding of the technological, legal and societal issues that are emerging, or are likely to emerge, with the development of Metavers/Web 3.0. The aim is to identify and anticipate the actions required in terms of public policy and regulation (including self-regulation).

Work programme : Ecological transition

Working group "Transport, Energy and Climate Economics (TrEnCE)"

The Transport, Energy, and Climate Economics Working Group (TrEnCE) organizes academic presentations on diverse topics within the umbrella fields of transport, energy, and environmental economics and offers a place for researchers of these closely related subfields to exchange. We focus on research in economics, but we also welcome relevant contributions from related disciplines. We welcome works at all stage, especially ongoing works to benefit from discussions.

Project "BlaBlaModes" : a multimodal Mobility as a Service (MaaS) platform

For BlaBlaCar, the aim is to develop a multimodal offer and the academic teams involved will be mobilised to understand the demand, offer and regulation in this ecosystem for a period of 42 months. Dauphine is part of the research consortium dedicated to the PSE projects and ESSEC.

Project "Circular Economy"

This working group began by crossing the reflections carried out within the Chair on a thesis currently being finalised on the "off-market" strategies of mass-market retailers in the dynamic context of the energy transition, and a thesis being started on the organisation of recycling sectors and public service delegation models.

The possibilities for innovation by economic actors in a non-market setting or under the supervision of a regulatory authority provide interesting insights into the way in which companies perceive environmental regulations, but also the opportunities and risks. This working group allows the start of an argued reflection in the field of circular economy regulation.

Work programme : Public Governance, Institutions, Regulation

Working group "Public Governance"

The Public Governance working group focuses on the relationships between public and political institutions, civil society and the market, and studies them through the prism of the tools and concepts of economic analysis. Particular emphasis is placed on the collection and use of original data. The work is based on various research projects carried out within the Chair, such as: the study of administrative or historical archives to study the regulation of industry and markets over a long period of time and its consequences; the analysis of interactions between economic and political institutions; the behaviour of elected politicians and the implications for public policy; the making of European policies through the prism of a detailed study of the legislative process and public consultations; or the comparison of regulatory policies between OECD countries.

These topics are considered empirically and discussed by a group of economists and data scientists as well as by external experts.

Project "Sectoral regulation : The railway sector"

This working group is a collaboration with the Centre de Recherche Droit Dauphine (CR2D) on a project on the regulatory issues related to the opening of the railway sector to competition in the EU.
