    New study: EU common charger reform puts large innovation and consumer value at risk

    The EU is considering adopting a law to ensure that all phones, tablets, and similar mobile devices use one type of charging cable – a EU common charger. The suggested benefits of such a reform is that it will improve consumer convenience and reduce electronic waste. However, a common charger will at the same time limit the ability and incentive for firms to innovate and improve charging solutions for consumers.

    In our recent report for Apple, we provide novel data and insights on how EU consumers value innovation in charging cables and how their demand for chargers will change if a common charger is introduced. Based on a EU consumer survey, the results show that a delay in charger innovation leads to an estimated loss of consumer value of €1.5 billion (NPV over seven years). If the common charger instead completely blocks future innovation, the consumer loss will be nearly 10 times larger.

    At the same time, the common charger will lead to only a minor reduction in EU cable demand and environmental benefit. EU consumers surveyed in the project report that they already have approximately one cable per mobile device (including old cables no longer in use). Given consumer usage and preferences that define how much sharing is possible, the scope for reducing the number of charging cables in the EU is therefore limited. In conclusion, the theoretical reduction in cable demand if a common charger is introduced corresponds in practice to a quite limited environmental gain – based on consumer evidence, we estimate that a mandatory common charger would reduce the carbon footprint to a value of €13 million (NPV over seven years).

    Copenhagen Economics hosts Expert Witness Workshop 2020

    Today, we host our annual Expert Witness Workshop in Copenhagen, where we have exclusively invited 13 external participants from five law firms in five countries.

    Expert testimony by economic experts can be decisive in competition and dispute cases that are brought to court. Therefore, the purpose of the workshop is to train the planning and execution of expert testimony in court.

    The training will take the form of e.g. role-plays where all is expected to take an active part in the roles of plaintiff, defendant, expert witness, and judge panel, respectively. Consultants from Copenhagen Economics will act as expert witnesses. Leading the judge panel is Senior Associate Henrik Rothe, who is former Chief Justice at the Danish Maritime & Commercial Court.

    New study: The European business contribution via social media tools estimated at over EUR 200bn and 3m jobs per year

    Social media is often viewed as a tool that allows people to interact with family, friends, and a wider social circle by sharing information, images, and experiences in real time. Massive reductions in the cost of information and communication technology and the proliferation of internet access have led social media to become an everyday tool for many individuals and organisations across the globe.

    In this report, we set out to gain a deeper understanding of how European businesses, in particular, use digital tools and social media to empower businesses throughout their lifecycle, from start-up to establishment and with every customer relationship. There is significant evidence that a broad range of digital tools can help businesses in all industries throughout Europe by reducing the costs of marketing and sales, reducing the barriers to entrepreneurship, expanding the reach of export markets, and facilitating innovation within businesses and throughout industries.

    To explore these effects, we conducted a survey focusing on the role of social media, using Facebook apps and technologies as an example. Representatives from 7,720 businesses in 15 countries across the EU responded. The survey results suggest that digital technologies, like Facebook apps and technologies, facilitate business growth, trade, and innovation.
