State Aid Uncovered 2022 - StateAid 2022 800 × 480

State Aid Uncovered presents analysis of the main policy and legal developments in the field of State aid in 2022. The Temporary Framework that was adopted in March 2020 came to an end on 30 June 2022, but in March 2022, the European Commission adopted the Temporary Crisis Framework laying down criteria for the compatibility of state aid granted for the purpose of supporting undertakings harmed by the repercussions of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

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 the University of Nicosia, 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 inconsistencies or contradictions.
