Methodology

A Master Class is a high-level event for professionals and officials involved in State aid. The purpose of the Master Class is to review important developments in State aid case law and the decisional practice of the European Commission, assess their implications for the Member States and public authorities and to improve your State aid measures. Participants are encouraged to submit a summary of the problem or case they want to present for discussion in advance. This information will of course be treated confidentially.

The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical issues. You will have ample opportunities to present your own issues and discuss them with speakers and participants from other countries.

Review and Assessment

On the first day, you receive an expert review of the latest Court rulings and Commission decisions. Seminal judgments and decisions are analyzed in depth. The analysis identifies how principles are applied in specific situations, delineates possible exceptions and draws out the implications for State aid policies.

Problem Solving

The second day is devoted to cases and questions submitted by participants. State aid measures, problems and other issues from the daily practice of participants are discussed and difficulties resolved. Participants receive advice on how to improve their measures and ensure their compatibility with the internal market.

Best Practices

On both days, the format of this advanced small-scale Master Class enables you to consider wider issues of relevance to officials and practitioners involved in State aid. You can exchange information and experience with professionals from other countries.

Course materials are available to download after the event.
