Current ACT and ACLE joint Post-Doctoral researcher Antonio Davola
Dr. Antonio Davola, LLM, is a joint post-doctoral Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellow at the Amsterdam Centre for Transformative Private Law (ACT) and ACLE, and he is Adjunct Professor at LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome. His main areas of interest involve financial markets regulation, competition law, consumer protection and the governance of new technologies in the European framework.
His Marie Curie project “Fair Personalisation” investigates how the use of online personalised and tailored offers affects individual propensity to consume, in order to ultimately redefine the normative thresholds and conditions under which targeted commercial practices may be deemed unfair or manipulative under EU law, laying the foundations for framing a harmonized regulation. The project’s overall aim is to rethink the interplay between regulators, enterprises and consumers, to enhance consumer protection in the digital society.
