    François Lévêque is professor of law and economics at Mines ParisTech. His research, teaching and consulting interests are in the areas of antitrust, intellectual property rights and network regulation.

    Graduated in engineering from Agro, he started his academic activity with a PhD thesis in economics (1982) on forest property rights and their consequences on the industrial organization of pulp and paper sector. His research on forest economics terminated in 1989 with the publication of a reference textbook in French. Then he begun to work on the protection of intellectual property rights, in particular with respect to patent extension for biotechnology inventions and to the reduction of bio-diversity - a topic he addressed in a book in 1993. Since this date his research has progressively enlarged to the study of environmental policies, regulatory reforms, and competition law enforcement. He published in 1996 at Edward Elgar a seminal book on the setting process of European environmental laws, and a series of books at Kluwer Academic Publisher on environmental agreements (1999). He wrote a French textbook for undergraduate students in economics of regulation at La Découverte (1998). He edited a book on merger remedies in EU and US competition law (Edward Elgar, 2002) and another one on Transport Pricing of Electricity Networks (Kluwer Academic Publisher, 2003). He is the co-author of the first textbook in Economic Analysis of Intellectual Property Law (La Découverte, 2003). He recently edited a book on Competitive Electricity Markets and Sustainability (Edward Elgar, 2006). He wrote several papers in academic journals, including Energy Policy, World Competition, Competition and Regulation in Network Industries, La Revue Lamy de la Concurrence, Concurrences, Electricity Journal, Review of Economic Research on Copyright Issues. He launched in 2007 an academic blog, Energypolicyblog.com. During the past fifteen years his research has focused on the assessing of policy instruments (e.g., tariffs in electricity transmission, co-venants, merger control,) and of policy reforms (e.g., gas and electricity French and EU laws, European Commission proposals for Community patent and software protection, modernization of EU competition policy).

    He taught economics of natural resources at the Ecole des mines de Paris (1984-1990), environmental economics at EHESS (1997-2001) and at Pavia University (1999-2002), EU Competition Law at the Boalt Law School, University of California at Berkeley (2002-2007). He created in 1999 a new major in law and economics at the Ecole des mines. He has taught industrial economics at the Ecole des mines since 1996.

    His consulting activity is aligned with his academic interests. He has been regularly commissioned by the French government, OECD and the European Commission to undertake consultancy and participate to advisory committees. François Lévêque has also founded Microeconomix in 2002.
