heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the LLM in Transnational and European Commercial Law, Banking Law, Arbitration/Mediation, at the International Hellenic University. Innovation has become a buzzword of EU policy in the last decade. The prevalence of this term is even more intense in EU competition law, where innovation-related literature is at its spike. There is, however, one aspect of the relation between innovation and competition that remains rather underexplored by literature and policy. That is competition concerns raised in mergers between an incumbent and an innovative start-up, which merger will not have an immediate effect on the relevant market structure. This thesis finds that the current EU merger control model is incapable of drawing such mergers under its scope, due to its static nature and its indirect assessment of innovation concerns. This way, a significant amount of concentrations potent of causing impediments to effective competition remain uncontrolled. This thesis also proposes the introduction of a dynamic contemplation of innovation-based mergers, which would allow the assessment of their long-term effects on innovation, and the activation of respective remedies.
