Double Taxation within the European Union

12.04.2010
On Monday April 19th the University of Luxembourg will start its new Conference Series on current topics of International and European Taxation. The first conference will deal with double burdens within the European Union.

Double taxation still remains one of the biggest obstacles to cross-border trade. The conference will analyse the reasons for the existence of juridical and economic double taxation and the given solutions for the avoidance of double taxation. Special emphasis is put on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and on legislative proposals which will improve the situation of the taxpayer.

In 2009, the Luxembourg based advisory firm ATOZ funded a new chair for International and European Taxation at the University of Luxembourg. Since February 2010 this chair has been held by Dr. Alexander Rust who previously taught at the prestigious LL.M. programme for International Taxation at New York University. For the conference he invited leading practitioners and academics who have extensively worked and published on the topic of the Avoidance of Double Taxation within the European Union. Mr. Koen Lenaerts, judge at the European Court of Justice, will illustrate the jurisprudence of the ECJ. After each lecture a panel will discuss the proposals made by the speakers. An audience of more than 200 practitioners and academics is expected to attend the conference.

The conference will take place from 9 am to 5.30 pm at the University of Luxembourg on Campus Kirchberg, 6, rue Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi, Luxembourg-Kirchberg ( in English). The conference programme can be downloaded on www.uni.lu in the event section. For further information and registration, please contact fdef-colloques@uni.lu, Mrs Armelle Arnould, phone +352 46 66 44 6619.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
