Key Issues Covered in 2020 Include:

COVID-19 & State Aid

Countries across Europe are responding to the economic repercussions of COVID-19 with a plethora of state aid measures. Join us to analyse what is available country by country as well as the scope of the new State Aid Temporary Framework. Our speakers will review how these apply across key sectors including transport and consider what challenges are likely to arise from them in the future. 

Green Deal & State Aid

Join us to analyse the role of state aid in the European Green Deal, state aid for a decarbonised Europe and the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) guidelines. Speakers for this session include representatives from Iberdrola, the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise, Energy and Communications and Shell International.

State Aid Rules & Third Countries

Review how EU state aid rules function in relation to third countries including the Commission’s new tools, who is enforcing the rules outside the EU and how the level playing field is being distorted by geopolitical interests. During this session we will explore how state aid rules are applied in the Ukraine as well as what is the likely future for the UK state aid regime post-Brexit.
