Overview – State Aid for Research, Development and Innovation Projects

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.

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.

Participants receive a certificate upon participation.
