Innovation & Regulation 2.0

Nicolas Curien, associate researcher at the “Innovation & Regulation in Digital Services” Chair, is proposing to think about “Innovation & Regulation 2.0″ in an article to be published soon in the Cahiers de l’ARCEP. He explains his vision of an “open regulation” which, like “open innovation”, spreads beyond the regulator office, and secretes  a “meta-regulation” whose purpose is to stimulate the market rather than only laying down the law.
