A FEW WORDS ON THE TOPIC
What is new with the administration of experiments in public law?
Very recently, a new trend in administration of experiments has appeared. Regulatory sandboxes have been designed to test innovative technologies, products and services which are not fully compliant with the existing legal and regulatory framework. Thus, the main purpose of regulatory sandboxes is to learn about the opportunities and risks that a particular innovation carries and to develop the right regulatory environment to accommodate it. Various regulatory sandboxes have spontaneously emerged in various jurisdictions to support further development technologies, such as autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, new energy technologies etc.
The lecture will present this new trend in the administration of experiments in a broader perspective of public law and will respond to the following questions:
- What are the current trends in administration of experiments by the means of law?
- What are the major benefits of regulatory sandboxes, which have been established in many jurisdictions?
- Are there any concerns, or risk arising in this field?
- Are regulatory sandboxes really a new feature in law?
