The New State Aid Guidelines – Risk Finance, and Financial Instruments under Structural Funds

With the New Risk Finance Guidelines in place, the scope and variety for financing innovative and growth-oriented SMEs and midcaps have considerably widened. As such, it will be crucial for public officials, financial intermediaries and beneficiaries to know, how State aid rules have to be applied for financial instruments, which measures have to be notified with the Commission and which categories are exempt under the General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER). Join us for this two day intensive training in Athens!

The event will take place as a hybrid event, which gives speakers and participants the opportunity to participate face-to-face or online via a live stream.

Starting from € 990,- (excl. VAT)

Methodology

A Lexxion Training provides you with a comprehensive overview of the current State aid control system in different sectors. Presentations, practical exercises and group work will enable you to apply the guidelines in the respective sector in practice.

This training will be conducted by renowned experts from EU and Member States’ institutions, as well as leading law firms and consultancies.

Our training method combines the three stages of learning to ensure that participants obtain the best possible understanding of EU rules:

  1. Identification of the main points or principles,
  2. Appreciation of the complexities and limitation of the principles,
  3. Application of the rules and principles.

Participants will be actively involved in the course. 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 the speakers and participants from other Member States.

Course materials are available to download after the event.
