Due to the restrictive measures adopted by several countries in response to the spreading of the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional International Summer School on "Banking and Capital Markets Law" will not take place in Milan and Lake Como as it used to. We decided anyway to address to PhD researchers, post-docs, junior faculty members and young professionals proposing a Summer Programme in a virtual space.
We firmly believe that, today more than ever before, the university has the task of disseminating knowledge, fostering dialogue between academics, students, practitioners and supervisory authorities and offering appropriate keys to understanding the really strong impact that COVID-19 is having on the banking and financial system. With the aim of investing in young people and their future, Università Cattolica has decided that this online special edition of the summer school will be free of charge. Without paying any fee but only presenting an application to the programme, you will be able to take part in a virtual class and to listen to lectures given by high-level speakers and attend some live round tables that will take place in the second part of July.

One of the most important objectives of Higher Education is the development of talents among the youngest generations by strengthening their versatility and their abilities to find innovative solutions to the challenges posed by unpredictable global scenarios. In the banking and financial field, in particular, problems such as technological evolution and sustainability require ever evolving professional skills that we have been enhancing with our Summer School.
The aim of this special edition of the Summer School is to provide junior researchers and young professionals in the field with exposure to cutting-edge research in banking and capital markets law. In particular, this online special edition focuses on COVID-19 crisis regulation: the role of ECB and the role of banks in general to overcome the crisis and on the impact of the crisis on the CMU plan in consideration of the issues raised by the climate change challenge and the need of a new vision for Europe's capital markets.
The International Summer School on Banking and Capital Markets Law - online special edition - consists of pre-recorded lessons of 30-40 minutes each, which will be made available from Thursday 9th July 2020 until Friday 25th September 2020. The participants can watch them through a dedicated website whenever they like.
