Intermediate State Aid
This workshop will provide an overview of State Aid relating to the running of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) projects. Applicant organisations need to ensure projects are State Aid compliant from the outset and maintain State Aid compliance thereafter throughout the delivery of an ESIF project. This workshop will be led by EU/Competition expert Jonathan Branton from DWF LLP and will apply to both European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and European Social Fund (ESF) projects. It will cover the complexities surrounding the investment of public funding into projects and the following key topics:
- What is State Aid including a background to the regulations
- How to spot and deal with State Aid
- Review of the Block Exemptions
- Ensuring ESIF compliance
- Common pitfalls and problems
