The Centre for Competition Policy is UK’s leading inter-disciplinary centre focused on competition, regulation and consumer policy. The CCP group conducts independent policy-relevant research, organises bespoke professional development and provides specialist events such as conferences, workshops and seminars. We bring together experts, government officials and practitioners from the fields of business, economics, law and political science to create and communicate high-quality research.
CCP was established in 2004 as a 10-year Centre of Research Excellence funded by a major UK research council. Since 2014, the centre has been self-funding from a wide range of research, consultancy, training and related activities. We have developed a strong reputation for delivering training, advice and evidence in a practitioner-friendly manner. Many of our members have substantial in-agency competition experience and substantial competition authority consulting experience. The CCP has close links with, but is independent of, a wide range of regulatory authorities, government bodies and private sector practitioners, including the European Commission, the OECD and within the UK, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Ofcom (the telecom and media regulator), Ofgem (the energy regulator), Ofwat (the water regulator) and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Reflecting the centre’s practical focus it receives gold sponsorship from the international law firm Clifford Chance, subject to maintaining full independence. While based in the UK, the CCP has extensive international links and in the past five years has undertaken projects for the European Commission (DG Competition and DG Justice), the OECD, APEC, the Centre on Regulation in Europe (CERRE), the Danish Competition Authority, the European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), Germany’s Markenverband and the University of Johannesburg.
CCP currently has 41 associated faculty members (from Economics, Law, Business and Political Science) who, in addition to their research, teach on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within the University; 24 research student members; and is supported by two administrators. Its faculty and students come from around the world, giving the Centre strong international ties. CCP hosts an annual conference which draws an international audience of more than 150 delegates (the last conference had 600 registrations, more than half from outside the UK), as well as other ad hoc conferences and workshops, in particular for UK government departments and regulatory bodies who are members of our Subscription Membership Scheme. CCP also produces a biannual Research Bulletin, a blog (competitionpolicy.wordpress.com) and twitter feed (@ccp_uea) to effectively communicate our current research to a wide audience.
