Presentation at iCourts in Copenhagen
On 1 January 2020 Betül Kas joined our ERC team as a postdoc researcher on the subproject on privatisation of civil justice. She is the successor of Alexandre Biard, who as of December 2019 continued his career as a senior advisor at BEUC in Brussels, where he will be able to use his extensive research experience for the benefit of enforcing consumer rights in the EU. We are grateful for his invaluable contribution to our project, resulting in an impressive number of publications and conference presentations among others. We all greatly appreciated his many initiatives, his fieldwork, support of the other researchers, work spirit, and good sense of humour. We are happy to keep him in our team as an affiliated researcher and look forward to our futher collaboration.
We welcome Betül to our team as the successor of Alexandre for the postdoc project on privatisation. She has an impressive track record, having worked among others as a PhD researcher in the ERC Advanced project of Hans Micklitz at the European University Institute in Florence and as a postdoc researcher in the Vidi project led by Chantal Mak at the University of Amsterdam. Her German background will further strengthen our research on German law and practice. One of her research focuses will be the interaction between public and private justice. We are very happy to have Betül on our team and look forward to working with her in 2020 and onwards!

On September 21st, Jos Hoevenaars was invited to present his work on the European Court of Justice and the preliminary reference procedure at the workshop ‘Studying EU Law and the European Court of Justice – New Approaches and Methodologies’ organized by Professors Jan Komarek, Mikael Rask Madsen and Antoine Vauchez. As the title suggest the workshop was aimed at bringing together researchers in the field of EU studies who employ innovative methodologies in studying the European Court of Justice (ECJ). His contribution, which focused on a bottom-up approach to litigation before the ECJ, will be part of an edited volume to be published in 2019.
