Policy field

Competition: State aid

Target group

Public authorities, citizens, companies and organisations are welcome to contribute to this consultation. Contributions are particularly sought from the national authorities dealing with state aid for R&D&I and from research organisations.

Period of consultation

From 20.12.2011 to 24.02.2012

Objective of the consultation

This public consultation follows publication of a mid-term review on the application of the current Community Framework for State aid for R&D&I in August 2011.

By way of a questionnaire, the Commission invites Member States and interested parties to submit their input and views on the review of the EU state aid rules for supporting R&D&I ahead of the expiry of theR&D&I Framework end of 2013. The Commission is in particular interested in statistical information and qualitative comments on national R&D&I policies at large and on national state aid support measures for R&D&I in particular.

On the basis of the replies received to the published questionnaire, the Commission will prepare a first draft of a revised R&D&I Framework which it expects to publish in the 2nd half of 2012 for consultation.
