State Aid Practice in ESIF Programme and Project Management

The State aid legal framework has considerably changed in the last years offering additional possibilities to ensure compatibility of State aid. As a result, one of the main challenges of ESIF managers is to ensure that expenditures are spent in compliance with EU and national State aid rules. Our interactive practical course offers you the possibility to exchange with experts from EU institutions, Member States as well as the private sector. The different perspectives of our experienced trainers will support to apply the complex rules to real cases. A mix of learning methods will be applied in the course to achieve the best results.

Join from wherever you are – high-quality content delivered to your (home) office. Please check your device compatibility to be ready to attend the online course. This is your first online course with Lexxion? Don’t worry, here’s a quick guide.

The participants will be actively involved in the course. 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.
