The link between State Aid Law and the provision of SGEI causes uncertainty among public authorities as they face a conflict of interests: On the one hand, public bodies are obligated to guarantee the supply of public services. On the other hand the providers of SGEI may not be overcompensated and competition may not be distorted. Furthermore, each Member State has the discretion to define which services fall under the SGEI, so the same service can be qualified in different way.
The participants will be actively involved in the training. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunities to present your own problematic issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.
Just send to us your cases and questions in advance! We will forward them to our speakers, who will include your issues in the programme and answer them during the training. All information concerning such problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
