State aid rules for agricultural and rural development measures present the double challenge of implementing the general principles of competition and State aid law and having to guarantee coherence with the EU’s common agricultural and rural development policies.
Our experts will give you a comprehensive overview on the concepts and rules applicable for the agricultural products and share with you their experiences on how to ensure compliance of your projects with the State aid law.
A special focus will be laid on the State aid requirements for the funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD) as well as on the loans, guarantees and other financial instruments for rural development.
The participants will be actively involved in the training. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunities to present your own problematic issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.
Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the training. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
