State Aid Uncovered, now in its eighth edition, presents analysis of the main policy and legal developments in the field of State aid in 2020. Several hundred
of State aid measures were approved by the European Commission to combat COVID-19 on the basis of the Temporary Framework that was adopted in March 2020.
The year was also rich in case law that expanded our understanding of State aid, brought fresh insights and also a few surprises, expertly explained here by Phedon Nicolaides, Professor at the University of Maastricht and College of Europe in Bruges, as well as Academic Director at Lexxion Training.                                                                                                                                                        Prof. Nicolaides identifies the major State aid judgments and Commission decisions of the year, as well as new rules and legislation, critically reviewing their most salient features. This book compiles articles originally published weekly on Lexxion’s State Aid Blog.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The articles are edited and conveniently grouped into chapters covering the main aspects of the concept and procedures of State aid, Commission guidelines and the role of national courts. Each article presents the main points of a court ruling or Commission decision, places them in the context of similar case law or practice,assesses the underlying reasoning, and identifies any in consistencies or contradictions.
This volume is supplemented with a full index of CJEU and Commission cases.
