State Aid for Research, Development and Innovation Projects

The Lexxion Training on the Research, Development and Innovation (R&D&I) helps you understand the relevant State aid compliance requirements and offers you to apply the GBER and the State aid framework properly. With additional explanations on the experiences in the Member States and an overview on the relevant recent Case law developments (Covid-19 updates included) you will have a clear understanding of State aid compliant support for R&D&I projects.

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. If this is your first online course with Lexxion, here’s a quick guide.

Overview

The European Commission adopted a set of rules that should facilitate the granting of aid measures by Member States in support of research, development and innovation (R&D&I) activities.

The R&D&I State aid Framework sets out the rules under which Member States can grant State aid to companies and institutions to carry out R&D&I projects. Moreover, the scope of measures that no longer need to be notified to the Commission for prior approval has been widened under the new General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER). These rules help Member States reach the targets for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, while at the same time limiting distortions in the Single Market.

R&D&I projects might suffer from insufficient access to finance (due to asymmetric information) or from coordination problems among actors involved. Therefore, State aid for R&D&I can be compatible with the internal market where it can be expected to alleviate a market failure in promoting the execution of an important project of common interest.

Who should participate?

Lawyers and funding experts responsible for compliance with State aid law of R&D&I projects, working at:

  • State Aid Monitoring Office
  • Departments responsible for R&D&I funding in the Ministries of Education, Research, Innovation and Technology and their implementing agencies
  • Departments responsible for R&D&I funding in the regional authorities
  • Managing Authorities and Intermediate Bodies involved in Operational programmes for R&D&I
  • National research institutes and agencies for Research, Innovation, Development and Competiveness
  • Research centers
  • Companies conducting R&D&I projects benefitting from public funding
  • Universities
  • Consultants

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 for download after the event.

Hybrid Course

The hybrid course by Lexxion Publisher is a new combined event format, which takes place in parallel: face-to-face and online. This new event format offers participants and speakers the opportunity to attend the event live on site or online, depending on the current situation, which gives additional flexibility. Our primary goal is to provide our online participants with the same high-quality experience as participants on-the-spot. For this, we place particular emphasis on interaction. This includes virtual networking during coffee breaks, active participation in discussions and the opportunity to ask questions via chat or microphone.

We take care of your wellbeing

  • Regular cleaning of surfaces and sanitary facilities
  • Sufficient ventilation of event room
  • Recommended hand hygiene
  • Possibility to keep distance between all speakers and participants
