Current research

Parallel framework Agreements

Magdalena’s PhD project forms a part of the research project ‘CPB-Project: Safeguarding competition and equal access to Central Purchasing Bodies’ agreements’, which is carried out and supervised by Professor Carina Risvig Hamer and financed by DFF Inge Lehmann.

The project’s main objective is to answer the research question of when and how it is possible to create parallel framework agreements and whether the creation of such is in line with the EU public procurement and competition law principles. The intended research outcome is a comprehensive monograph containing both empirical and dogmatic analysis of parallel framework agreements.


Magdalena is teaching EU law seminars as well as part of the Governmental Contracts course. In the spring semester 2022, she was teaching the English part of the EU-Udbudsret course. She welcomes bachelor’s and master’s theses on the topics related to EU law, public procurement law and competition law.
