European State aid law is facing reform in key sectors of the economy as a direct or indirect
consequence of the economic crisis. These reforms are driven by different objectives aiming at consolidating, clarifying and developing existing rules. The Court of Justice of the EU has also contributed with some key decisions on specific issues.

Key topics

  • Overview of recent case law from the Court of Justice of the EU
  • Post-crisis regime: forthcoming State aid rules for bank rescue and restructuring in normal market conditions
  • Corporate tax schemes and State aid rules: material selectivity in light of the Gibraltar case
  • Reform of EU State aid rules on Services of General Economic Interest (SGEI)
  • New State aid guidelines related to the EU Emissions Trading Scheme and the guiding principles for granting financial support to energy-intensive companies
  • State aid rules for the aviation sector and the review process for new guidelines in view of the significant market changes in the last decade

Who should attend?

Lawyers specialised in State aid law, in-house counsel, civil servants involved in State aid procedures, industry representatives directly or indirectly affected by State aid.
