Information


Staying up to date with the latest provisions for State aid for infrastructure projects

Infrastructure projects are a key area of European State aid law. At the core of the regulations is the aspect of economic vs. non-economic purpose of an infrastructure. If a later economic use of an infrastructure can be expected, already the building of this infrastructure may be considered an economic activity and therefore State aid could be involved.






What are the specifications in the different sectors of infrastructure?

For several types of infrastructure it is challenging to determine whether they are in compliance with EU State aid law. Take this chance to discuss the new challenges and current developments at EU level with representatives from the European Commission as well as experienced experts from Member States at our seminar.

  • Be well prepared for managing infrastructure projects and know which pitfalls to expect and whether State aid is involved
  • Ensure the correct financing of infrastructure projects according to State aid regulation requirements
