The IRIS conference, held this year in Salzburg, is widely considered to be the leading conference on IT and Law in continental Europe. 

 “Capacity Building is a key concern not just of CREATE, but all of the PhD Programme in Edinburgh. For a group of researchers this young to get nominated for this prestigious award is testimony of the quality of our postgraduate students and the excellent support they get in Edinburgh to make the transition to academic careers,” said Professor Schafer.
