Personal profile

Research interests

Inge Graef is Associate Professor of Competition Law at Tilburg Law School with affiliations to the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) and the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC).

Inge holds expertise in the areas of competition law, platform regulation and the governance of data. She is particularly interested in the interaction of competition law with other legal regimes, such as intellectual property, data protection and consumer law. Inge also regularly comments and advises on new legislative and policy initiatives with regard to the regulation of digital services and data.

She is co-chairing the Digital Clearinghouse initiative, which aims to facilitate cooperation, dialogue and exchange of insights between regulatory authorities across Europe and beyond in the areas of competition, data protection and consumer law. Inge is also appointed as a member of the European Commission's expert group to the EU Observatory on the Online Platform Economy

Inge has been involved in various policy studies commissioned by the European Commission, the Belgian, Dutch and German government on topics such as the role of big data in competition law, the regulation of business-to-business relationships in the online platform economy, data sharing, net neutrality and the position of over-the-top services within electronic communications law.

Inge held visiting appointments at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition in Munich (2014) and at the Institute of European and Comparative Law of Oxford University (2018).

Career

In 2017, Inge joined Tilburg Law School where she is affiliated to the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT) and the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC).

Prior to joining Tilburg University, Inge worked as a researcher at the KU Leuven Centre for IT & IP Law (CiTiP) where she obtained a PhD in law. In her doctoral thesis, Inge explored the interaction between competition law and data on online platforms, and the extent to which data protection can be protected as a non-efficiency concern in competition policy. For her article 'Market Definition and Market Power in Data: The Case of Online Platforms' published in 2015, Inge won the Young Writer's Award of Kluwer Law International's journal World Competition.

After her master studies in Maastricht and Nijmegen, Inge did traineeships at the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs dealing with competition and public procurement policy issues, and at the European Commission's DG Competition where she worked on various competition investigations in the technology sector.
