The program of the conference can be found here.

Dr. Maja Bogataj Jančič took part in the conference with a lecture “Copyright Education”. She discussed copyright exemptions and limitations that allow access and reuse of copyrighted material for educational purposes. She further focused on the fragmentation of copyright laws across Europe and the fact that the new EU Directive 2019/790 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 April 2019 on copyright and related rights in the Digital Single Market, which Member States must implement by 7 June 2021, has not entirely fulfilled its promises and expectations to introduce a new mandatory exception for education that would harmonise copyright for education across Europe.
