OVERVIEW

The teaching course is aimed at providing the basic notions of European Union law to students attending the Master Multimedia Engineering course, both as regards the institutional structure of the organization and the decision-making processes, and as regards to policies related to technological innovation and digitalization of the market. This approach aims to introduce an interdisciplinary element in the technical and specialist training offered by the degree.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Provide technical students with the legal framework of Eu intervention in the sector they are approaching from a technical point of view. The interdisciplinary approach will empower graduates with new and useful skills for the job market and it will give students a greater awareness on the conseuqences deriving from the use and functioning (malfunctioning) of the technology.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The program is divided into two sections: a first part dedicated to the institutional and general part of EU law, characterized by the study of the structure of the international organization, the sources and tools of judicial protection envisaged by it and an introduction to the market single; a second part dedicated to European intervention in the sector of new technologies, with particular reference to those of spatial origin.

The teaching aims to let students achieve:

- knowledge of the institutional structure and operating rules of the EU;

- knowledge of the system of sources and of the EU regulatory procedure, as well as of the tools of judicial protection;

- knowledge of the principles and rules relating to the single market;

- ability to apply this knowledge to concrete cases;

- ability to interpret and systematically read the legal rules of the European Union system.

- interdisciplinary knowledge necessary for access to the labor market

PREREQUISITES

Teaching methods

Teaching is offered by lectures directly held by the Professor in person or by teledodactic for a total of 50 hours, during which the main theoretical notions of European Union law will be presented and analyzed with specific reference to technological innovation and European intervention on space, but examples and practical cases will also be proposed and discussed. Texts of sentences and normative texts of particular relevance and usefulness for the understanding of the topics will be attached in Aulaweb.

Occasionally scholars and experts of the subject or professionals may be invited to carry out a lesson on topics of particular interest and relevance, also in order to allow students to acquire greater awareness of the concrete and applicative dimension of the subject.

EXAMS

Exam description

The exam takes place in oral form. Students who have attended at least 2/3 of the lessons are offered the opportunity to take, before the start of the exam session, a written assignment consisting of multiple choice questions that touch all the topics covered by the program (for example, eg: Which of the following is not a member of the European Union?: a) Denmark, b) Switzerland, C) Croatia, where the correct answer is that at letter b)

Assessment methods

The exam aims to verify the student's actual knowledge and acquisition of the theoretical basic notions as well as his ability to identify and apply the reference standards to specific concrete cases. Through general theoretical questions and the proposal of practical cases and problems, it will be verified whether the student is able to:

identify and define legal concepts relating to European Union law;
use appropriate technical and legal language;
identify and apply to practical cases the main regulatory provisions governing the conduct of relations relating to the single market with particular reference to the technical issues they studied during the degree course;
know the main rules of operation of the institutions of the European Union and the related interinstitutional mechanisms;
know the scope of EU law acts and the relationship with national rules
