On Monday 26 February, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg will host a workshop about the organisation of databases on European civil procedural law, and more especially about the creation of a database on cross-border enforcement claims. The workshop will bring together experts from the European Commission and the Court of Justice of the European Union, as well as potential users. Together, they will discuss the possible avenues in the content and design of the future database.
The workshop is organised in the framework of the IC2BE research project “Informed Choices in Cross-Border Enforcement”. Funded by the Justice Programme (2014-2020) of the European Commission, the project aims to assess the working in practice of the “second generation” of EU regulations on procedural law for cross-border cases, i.e. the European Enforcement Order, Order for Payment, Small Claims (as amended by Regulation (EU) 2015/2421) and the Account Preservation Order Regulations. As a result, it is intended to create a database of national case law. The project is carried out by a European consortium (the MPI Luxembourg and the universities of Complutense, Milan, Rotterdam, and Wroclaw) and is coordinated by Prof. Jan von Hein, Freiburg.
A detailed programme will follow and registration will open soon.
