Following directly on from the completion of the European Commission's State Aid Action Plan, this thorough guide provides a concise review of the current state aid policy of the European Community. Certain kinds of state aid are no longer allowed, some other kinds are now possible, while certain types and amounts of aid are now subject to more detailed and rigorous assessment. Increasingly, Member States tend to shift emphasis from supporting individual companies or sectors, towards pursuing horizontal policy objectives.
Numerous revealing case studies are presented, and useful appendices offer legislative texts and insights into defined areas of practice such as de minimis aid, the SME definition, risk capital for SMEs, aid for research and development and innovation, aid for rescue and restructuring, regional aid, or finally aid for agricultural, environmental or transport purposes.
