The XXXII Nordic Conference on Law and IT, Nov 13-15, 2017

The NRCCL (Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law) is hosting the XXXII Nordic Conference on Law and IT. This year’s theme is “Data Sharing and the Data Economy: Aspirations and Legal Realities”.

When and where: November 13-15, 2017, Oslo, Norway.

The goal of the conference is to examine aspects of European regulatory policy that critically impact upon data sharing and data economy initiatives. In particular, the conference seeks to cast light on the extent to which these initiatives are supported by the European legal framework. This is an essential step along the path to improving, if necessary, the fit between the law on the one hand and the ideals of data sharing and data economy on the other.

Seminarium om ekonomiska metoder för att utvärdera och föreslå lagstiftning på Stockholm Centre for Commercial Law

Docent Gustav Sjöberg behandlade frågor som rör samspelet mellan rättsvetenskap och ekonomi, alltså ett synsätt på rätten som huvudsakligen utgår från ett annat kunskapsområde. Rätten ses enligt detta synsätt som ett medel för att nå mål som formulerats med ekonomiska metoder. Fokus låg på frågor om hur användbar ekonomisk analys är i olika situationer, samt hur man kan konstruera ekonomiska modeller med syftet att bedöma lämpligheten i olika rättsliga lösningar.

Är forskning motgift mot fake news? Seminarium på Näringslivets hus anordnat av Institutet för näringslivsforskning och Studentlitteratur

På tisdagen höll IFN tillsammans med Studentlitteratur ett seminarium med titeln “Är forskning motgift mot fake news?” I ett scensamtal under ledning av Magnus Henrekson, IFN, förklarade Ulf Kristersson, M, att det är ett problem att den politiska debatten fjärmat sig från forskningen. Samtidigt ansåg han att politiker ofta lyssnar till vad just nationalekonomer har att säga. Marika Lindgren Åsbrink, LO, ansåg att dels fake news, dels filterbubblor är problematiska i den politiska debatten. Tre forskare, tillika författare i antologin Nationalekonomis frågor berättade inledningsvis om sin forskning: Johanna Möllerström, Maria Börjesson och Henrik Jordahl.

Conference: Law in the Digital Era, University of Lapland, Dec 10-12, 2017

Digitalization and digital technologies are increasingly driving towards revolutionary changes in the innovation system, affecting industries, universities and public institutions. Big data, 3D printing, software and AI technologies are pushing corporations towards adapting or newly creating business models to cope with the digital disruption. The problem is certainly not only technological or economic but also legal. Indeed, the regulatory framework needs to be shaped in such way that it provides with a fertile and healthy soil for these technological innovations to grow. This conference brings together experts from the academia, industry, as well as policy makers in a joint effort to raise awareness and propose solutions to some of the key legal disruptions that digitalization is causing in the fields of intellectual property law, contract law and ICT law.

Date: 10-12 December 2017
Place:
University of Lapland
