Call for proposals 2016 - Training of national judges in EU competition law JUST/2016/COMP/JUDGES Closed!


The objective of this call for proposals is to co-finance projects aiming to train national judges in the context of enforcing European competition rules. This includes public and private enforcement of both the Antitrust rules and the State aid rules. The final aim is to ensure a coherent and consistent application of EU competition law by national courts.


Projects should address in a tailored way the targeted audience, based on pre-identified training needs.

Training projects should ensure the active participation of national judges in their training activities, avoiding therefore mere lecturing.

The environment in which participative training for national judges takes place must be made sufficiently secure to enable participants to freely exchange views and experiences and to learn from one another, without external monitoring or interference. Projects are therefore at best exclusively addressed to national judges.

There are two Areas suggested:

  • Improvement of knowledge, application and interpretation of EU competition law
  • Development of legal linguistic skills of national judges
