Joint Research Platform
BRICS Competition Innovation Law&Policy Joint Research
Platform is a project of systematic strategic cooperation of BRICS competition authorities with
academia with a purpose to develop unified approaches to antimonopoly regulation of innovative and
socially important markets.
The project was initiated and is coordinated by the Skolkovo - Higher School of Economics Institute for
Law and Development, a Moscow-based international think tank.
The aim of the project is to provide the first systematic effort to establish a genuine BRICS-oriented
agenda and provide information on the BRICS countries’ models in competition law and policy. It might
also provide an opportunity to BRICS research community to explore the possibility of the emergence of
a BRICS competition law and policy model, in view of the importance the various BRICS countries put on
the objectives of development and growth. Starting from concrete economic sectors and developing an
academic dialogue among many various academic teams from BRICS the Platform will enable us to develop
incrementally a more general BRICS approach to competition law and policy issues.
The ambition of the BRICS Competition Law and Policy Research Platrform initiative is to produce
knowledge on regulatory action that would be useful for both the academic community and the world of
practice. We seek to actively involve these communities in our various research projects and to promote
the interaction and the dialogue between them through the organization of conferences and other events,
as well as the promotion of specific research projects.
The pilot project based on web interactive platform is a research project on the global food value
chain that is aimed to show the concrete benefits of a more integrated structure with its proper
e-infrastructure specifically dedicated to the BRICS countries.
