I am a leader of the international research group I established (Ondrej Blazo - Comenius University Bratislava; Borbala Domotorfy, Stella Simon - Pazmany Peter Catolic University, Budapest). The aim of the project is to establish under what conditions the court is entitled to defer to competition authorities’ findings. The constitutional standards which govern judicial review in competition law as well as case-law in competition law cases are analysed.

Martyniszyn (Queen’s University Belfast); duration 2017-2018. The project investigates the embracement and development of a free market economy in Poland following the fall of communism through the lens of Competition Law and Policy.

I take part in a network academic project concerning the transposition of Directive 2014/104/UE of 26 November 2014 on certain rules governing actions for damages under national law for infringements of the competition law provisions of the Member States and of the European Union led by B.

Marcos (eds.).
  • Fines in competition and consumer law. I acted as a co-ordinator of the research project of the Centre for Antitrust and Regulatory Studies commissioned by the Polish Competition Authority (November 2015 to May 2016). Its main goal was to analyse case-law concerning fines and factors that influence the level of those fines. As part of the project I prepared the study entitled Premises of the amount of fine in the Competition Act. I consulted the research questions and goals as well as final reports.

I prepared the study on the role of Article 6 ECHR in competition proceedings.
  • Judicial Review in U.S. Antitrust Law. While in the U.S. (Fulbright Scholarship, October 2013 to June 2014) I ran a project in the Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies, Loyola University Chicago School of Law on judicial review of administrative action in the U.S. with special focus on the judicial review of the FTC decisions. My research involved consultations with the professors of New York University, Columbia University, Loyola University Chicago, DePaul University as well as with representatives of the FTC and the American Antitrust Institute.

Społeczna odpowiedzialność biznesu - perspektywa pracownika, K. Klincewicz (ed.), Warszawa – Bydgoszcz: Forum Związków Zawodowych i Wydział Zarządzania UW, 2013. I was one of the originators of this project.
