The program will cover in its already third edition a broad range of trending and relevant legal aspects of data driven businesses.

The Summer School has been jointly developed by a consortium of five partner universities:

University for Continuing Education Krems -Coordinator/Lead (Austria)

Masaryk University (Czech Republic)
Kazimieras Simonavičius University (Lithuania)
Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv (Ukraine)

Scholars and experts from all partner universities and from legal practice will lecture on selected aspects of the data economy.

The Summer School will start with a two-week online preparatory course – followed by a final face-to-face week which will take place at the beautiful mountainous village Reichenau/Rax in Lower Austria. International legal practitioners and scientists will provide state of the art lectures and workshops to all our core subjects. For successfully completion a certificate worth 3 ECTS will be awarded.

In addition, for all interested students a place at our conference DELCON2 will be pre-booked.

Current Program:

Online Preparatory Course (Aug 12, 2024 – Aug 23, 2023)

The students will be assigned to 4 groups based on the focus topics of the Summer School:

  • Fundamentals of IP and ICT Law
  • Fundamentals of Data Protection Law
  • Data Driven Business Models
  • Transnational Business Law

Each group will be responsible to elaborate and discuss one legal case which has to be presented in front of the class on the final day in the last week. Additionally, every main topic will offer a list of reading material and a self-assessment quiz so that the participants can see for themselves if they really understand the respective topic. Each group will be supported by a tutor on their group work.

Conference on Data Economy Law – DELCON2 (Aug 23 to 24, 2024)

The University for Continuing Education Krems welcomes all interested summer school students to join the second Conference on Data Economy Law (DELCON 2) on August 23 and 24, 2024 in Krems. The two-day conference focuses on legal challenges of ongoing global digitization and wants to provide a platform to researchers as well as relevant stakeholders to talk about current issues and possible solutions. This year, the lead topic will be: AI Regulation in Europe: More Rules than Innovation?

For accommodation we recommend the student housing "Kolping" next to the campus. Depending on the number of summer school students participating at DELCON2 we will arrange a joint transfer to Reichenau on Saturday. Please note, that the costs of the additional two nights must be covered by yourself.

Face-to-Face Course (Aug 26, 2024 – Aug 30, 2024)

In our last week, all participants will meet in Reichenau/Rax for on-site lectures, workshops and legal discussions. In addition, we also want to emphasize the network experience of our event and provide a social program for all interested students.
The renowned hotel “Flackl-Wirt” will serve as the venue for our lectures and offers modern classrooms while maintaining the cozy feel of an alpine lodge. To provide housing next to the classroom the Summer School team already pre-booked rooms at “Flackl-Wirt” for students (shared rooms for three to six people). However, if participants prefer individual accommodation there are other options available in town e.g., “Hotel Marienhof”.

„As a graduate of the Summer School on Data Economy Law 2022, I was able to gain in-depth insights into the LLM program "Data Economy Law" and became enthusiastic about the blended learning concept. With its broad range of topics in the field of data and economy, the LLM program does justice to the advancing age of digitalization and provides graduates with essential theoretical and practical knowledge on an internationally applicable spectrum in the field of data use in business through renowned international lecturers from business and academia.“
