Cross-Border Enforcement in the EU (“IC2BE”) – Second Italian National Seminar, 8 November 2019


Seminar: Instruments and solutions for a more effective cross-border debt recovery in the EU/“Strumenti e soluzioni per un più efficace recupero transfrontaliero dei crediti”.

On 8 November 2019, the University of Milan (Università degli Studi di Milano) will host a second national seminar in the framework of the research project “Informed Choices in Cross-Border Enforcement” (IC2BE-JUSTAG-2016-02) funded by the Justice Programme (2014-2020) of the European Commission.

The project – coordinated by the University of Freiburg and conducted by a consortium comprising the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for Procedural Law and the Universities of Antwerp, Madrid (Complutense), Milan, Rotterdam and Wroclaw – aims to assess the functioning in practice of the “second generation” of EU Regulations on procedural law for cross-border cases, i.e. the European Enforcement Order (“EEO”), the European Order for Payment (“EPO”), the European Small Claims (as amended by Regulation (EU) 2015/2421) (“ESCP”) and the European Account Preservation Order (“EAPO”) Regulations.

The seminar will mark the occasion for the Italian team (Prof. Dr. Francesca C. Villata, Prof. Dr. Ilaria Viarengo, Prof. Dr. Lidia Sandrini, Prof. Dr. Elena D’Alessandro, Dr. Gabriele Molinaro, Dr. Marco Farina, Dr. Valeria Giugliano) to present the findings of the research and discuss them with experts from legal practice and academics, with the aim of assessing and improving the application of these instruments and their interface with the Brussels I-bis and Insolvency Regulations in Italy.

The working language is Italian. Practitioners and academics interested in cross-border litigation are invited to participate (free of charge) in this event. More information on the program and on the registration is available here.
