Welcome to the homepage of the Association of Competition Economists (ACE)

ACE was created in 2003 and brings together competition economists working in government, academia and the private sector. It provides a forum for discussion and debate on policies and specific cases. It is a not-for-profit organization based in Europe and is open to all those interested in the economics of competition. 

The main activity of ACE is the annual conference but the Association also encourages local conferences and workshops. 

On the 18th and 19th of November 2021, the ACE (Association of Competition Economics) conference will take place in Barcelona, hosted by Massimo Motta at the Barcelona School of Economics.

The conference will be a full in-person event.

The Keynote speech will be delivered by Jean Tirole. The full programme will be made available soon.
