About the research

The total budget for this 3-year project is ca 465.000 Euro and will allow for comparative and empirical legal research in Germany, the Netherlands, England and Poland. The research aims to develop European guidelines that national enforcement authorities (NEA) should apply to uniformly assess the transparency of disclosures. These guidelines will be drafted on the basis of insights gained from conducting: a) comparative legal research illustrating when a given disclosure is currently assessed as transparent by NEA; b) empirical legal research determining the desired and applied criteria for the transparency’s assessment.
