Metropolitan_Cities-scaled Events
Already for the sixth time the #neuland congress took place in Aachen. We were pleased to support the Rhein Ruhr City GmbH in terms of content again this year.

Creating the digital & sustainable future together represents a think tank for thought leaders on the way to an efficient, but equally ecologically and economically sustainable future.
The vision of #neuland is to connect and mobilize people in Europe’s fifth largest metropolitan region: Rhine-Ruhr. Together, innovations for “living and working in a sustainable urban metropolitan region” are to be developed and promoted in the following areas: Digitalization, Sustainability, Mobility, Sports & Culture, Energy and Smart City.

#neuland forms the framework and think tank for thought leaders and stakeholders who want to actively shape the future. In addition to decision-makers from the business, sports and cultural worlds, visionaries, scientists and politicians, investors and startups also emphasized the enormously important networking character of the event, which is intended to lead to the development of new business ideas.

RWTH Aachen Campus: Antitrust guidelines within the frame of events

RWTH Aachen Campus and its member companies draw importance to compliance of the German and European antitrust law within the framework of their activities. In case of violations of antitrust law, fines and claims for damages might be applied. Additionally, reputational damage might be caused, which needs likewise to avoid.

The ban on cartels (Art. 101 (1) AEUV, Section 1 GWB) prohibits in particular agreements of competitors on market conduct as well as the disclosure of competition-relevant information such as prices and its components, delivery times, warranty, costs, customers, quantities, innovations.

Restraints of competition can be excluded from the ban of cartels, since in specific individual cases it is required to create efficiencies for the benefit of consumers, e.g. for qualitatively better products, and effective residual competition remains (Section 2 GWB, Art. 101 (3) AEUV). Some privileges exist within the frame of Research & Development collaborations. Exceptions to the ban on cartels require a case-by-case assessment in advance.

Regarding this, the participants commit themselves to comply the following codes of conduct during the event and to contact Alexandra Köther in case of any ambiguities:

  1. Member companies verify in advance and document on their own responsibility, if a specific collaboration is permissible under antitrust law and which kind of basic rules need to be followed. The antitrust guidelines of RWTH Aachen Campus are binding and can be viewed at any time.
  2. In particular, collaboration with focus on standardization, benchmarking or agreements on (commercial) use of R&D results are subjected to a preliminary review.
  3. Any communication between the participants should be generally limited to the relevant issues, which are required to realize the respective projects.
  4. During all events including the breaks, attention will be paid that no critical topics and collaborations will be discussed. In case of doubts or ambiguities, the matter will be postponed, Alexandra Köther will be contacted and legal advice must be obtained in advance.
  5. If any doubt or ambiguity arise that a collaboration is performed in pretense, e.g. due to any anti-competitive agreements on prices and markets or coordinated abandonment of innovation activities, the event will be cancelled, Alexandra Köther informed and legal advice must be obtained.
  6. An invitation, agenda and participation list are compiled for each event. The protocol includes each discussed topic and decision. No topics will be discussed, which will not be correspondingly recorded in the protocol.
  7. Invitation, agenda and protocol will be provided to all participants. All participants review the documents with regard to critical and misleading wording and ask for correction, if required.
