European champion-ships: industrial champions and competition policy

Heim, Mathew, Midoes, Catarina, (2019), “European champion-ships: industrial champions and competition policy“, Bruegel.org, July

This blog post investigates the debate on whether European competition rules should foster European industrial champions, or allow national champions to grow to a European scale. It explores the criteria that one would intuitively ascribe to industrial champions, illustrating the difficulties in defining either ‘European’ or ‘Champion’. It then conducts a brief look into whether EU Merger decisions have impeded the formation of ‘European Champions’.
