This course examines in depth the interpretation and application of procedural rules in the field of State Aid and the procedural Regulation No 2015/1589 of 13 July 2015 amending Regulation No 659/1999.

We will analyse in detail topics such as, recovery of aid (which is a weak spot in the enforcement), third parties’ rights, and the application of state aid rules by national courts. The course will also provide you with a forum for comparing national experiences as regards administrative arrangements for notifying and registering aid and the enforcement of recovery decisions.

Based on a practice-oriented review of the procedures by which State Aid measures are notified to the European Commission, the course focuses on the consequences of non-notification and the implications for Member States which are instructed to recover State Aid that is incompatible with the internal market. Hence, you will be better equipped to avoid the risk of State Aid repayment, which often jeopardises important projects. In this context you will benefit greatly from exchanging experiences with experts from EU institutions and other Member States.

Who will most benefit?

This course meets the needs of managers and officials from all levels of government and local authorities, officials from public enterprises, representatives of business and trade associations, as well as lawyers and economists.
