Professor Jan Krämer about his contribution to Cyber<>Spaces and the reasons for his participation:
‘In Cyber<>Spaces I examine under which conditions and in what ways the principle of ‘net neutrality’ can be sensibly applied to the various dominant actors along the internet value chain.
Twitter, Facebook, Google, Amazon and others have become a fixture in our daily lives and therefore have a strong influence on the way we communicate and create value. Unlike the classic monopolies, such as those in the telecommunications and energy sectors, these giants of the internet are largely unregulated. Cyber<>Spaces creates an interdisciplinary forum for discussing and scrutinising the future regulatory framework for the internet economy. Only this will enable us to develop balanced and comprehensive recommendations for political decision-makers that do justice to the importance of the (data-driven) internet economy.’
Professor Krämer about the principle of net neutrality
Professor Krämer’s current research interests are on economic regulation of internet and telecommunications markets as well as digital ecosystems and data-driven business models. The CD.B research group ‘Data Neutrality & Open Access: Coherent Economic Policies for the Digital Economy’ is situated at his Chair.
