All participants can register to watch the live presentations and other conference activities, participate in discussions and submit questions to the speakers on almost all conference topics.
Petros Zourdoumis, founder of ODReurope has noticed: “The European Union has long realized that long procedures for resolving consumer disputes create obstacles to the proper functioning of the internal market, diminish consumer confidence, especially in cross-border transactions, reduce the volume of trade and undermine competitiveness and growth. In response to that, Europe has adopted Directive 2013/11/EE to introduce ADR practices in all member states for simple, fast and low-cost solution to consumer disputes and do so in a uniform way in order to eliminate the disparities in ADR coverage throughout the Union. Moreover, it gave to the whole idea a digital dimension with Regulation (EU) 524/2014 on consumer ODR. As we believe that the next step of legislating good intentions is to make them applicable good practices, we took it on from there, using the EU legal framework, the European environment and the need to be fast, effective and practical. Cyberweek 2015 is the ideal forum for ODReurope to present YOUSTICE, a new generation web application, which is today the only “two level” tool in the world for negotiating and resolving all consumer disputes online. At the same time it gives one more opportunity for ODReurope to extend an invitation to all those involved in online dispute resolution to co-operate closely for the promotion of ODR in Europe ”
