Católica Global School of Law is proud to announce its selection as one of the law schools participating in a groundbreaking initiative aimed at advancing research in the field of consumer law. Launched by the Consumer Empowerment Project (CEP), the program will provide research grants to outstanding Ph.D. students willing to promote a deeper understanding of consumer rights within the context of the green and digital transition.

CEP’s mission is to empower consumers, helping them understand their rights so that they can make better-informed decisions. Founded by Euroconsumers and Google, CEP is open to stakeholdes who can help create a space where consumer organisations, industry and civil society can come together to discuss and address key issues relating to consumer rights.

This newly launched research grant program seeks to support emerging scholars with a keen interest in advancing the discourse surrounding consumer protection. Executive Dean Tito Rendas expressed his enthusiasm about Católica’s participation in the program, stating that "being selected for the CEP Scholarship Initiative is a recognition of the quality of research and scholarship that Católica tries to foster” and that the school is “excited to support Ph.D. students in their pursuit of research that will contribute to the evolution of consumer protection".

The program will provide one Ph.D. student at Católica Global School of Law with the resources needed to delve into cutting-edge consumer rights issues. Stay tuned for the call for applications.
