Penelope’s research focuses on the interaction between Competition Law and the legislative package for the modernisation of Public Procurement in the EU. She is interested in assessing the new Directives 2014/23/EU, 2014/24/EU and 2014/25/EU of the European Parliament and Council against the rules of cartel enforcement in competition law as well as some illustrative public procurement models adopted by international organisations, such as the OECD, UNCITRAL, WTO and the World Bank.
Provisional PhD title: “The Legislative Package for the Modernisation of Public Procurement in the EU: Is it consistent with the challenges of transparency and competition?”
