European State Aid Law

EStAL was established in 2002 by Lexxion Publisher as a high-level forum for open dialogue and reflection on State aid law and policy. Unique in its field, this double-blind peer-reviewed journal congregates a diverse array of experts: academics, judges, economists, lawyers, Commission and Member State officials, consultants and private practitioners, all find in this leading journal legal and economic analysis of the highest calibre, concise and detailed information, balanced opinions and outstanding research on State aid in the EU. Our discerning and engaged readership has counted on the expertise and acumen found in our pages to enhance their professional activities for over 15 years.

State aid has been a central concept in law and economics since the very inception of modern European integration; already present in the 1951 Paris treaty establishing the European Coal and Steel Community, State aid control still plays a fundamental role in EU law and policy, and both internal and external markets. Together with the WTO regime, State aid in the EU is the most developed system of regulation of subsidies in the world.

Lexxion training was established in response to an increasing demand from European Member States for trainings with a practical approach.

Together with Prof. Phedon Nicolaides, academic director of Lexxion training, we decided to create a training center for practictioners who implement European regulations in their daily practice.

Our aim is to support public administration in the implementation of European policies on cohesion and regional economic development. This goal is achieved through practice-oriented trainings, which are designed in close cooperation with the European Commission and national authorities and run by reputable European experts. This enables us to focus on the most current European topics and to adapt our trainings to actual needs of the Member States.
