The Online Video Training Module (OVTM) is intended to offer an efficient training solution for EU judges and judicial professionals in the field of private enforcement of EU competition law.
Presentation of the JustCompetition Platform and the OVTM
The OVTM reflects an online solution that integrates a rich curriculum in an inexpensive format that reproduces the advantages of a presential seminar.The OVTM is based on the recordings of two real-time training seminars and one conference and follows a comprehensive curriculum.

We can provide to any organisation willing to further develop the module`s characteristics for their own national judges the English transcripts of the video materials with incorporated time codes.
Note: All the video recordings of the module have subtitles in English and more than a half have subtitles in Romanian, French and German. The JustCompetition team is open to collaborations with other interested parties that can assist in developing new translations for the module`s subtitles. In addition, we also invite the members of the target group, as well as other stakeholders, to send us their feedback. The module is a pilot project that we aim to improve and further develop.
