Thematic seminars - State aid for Environmental Protection

Date: 24 September 2018, 09:00-16:30

Venue: Hotel Crowne Plaza Brussels, Rue Gineste 3, 1210 Brussels (metro Rogier)

All Member States use financing from the European Structural Investment Funds for environmental protection. Such public support has to comply with State aid rules. The European Commission offers a targeted seminar on how to deal with State aid in environmental protection projects. The focus will be on low-emission mobility and waste management.

The seminar is organised in cooperation by the Directorate General Regional and Urban Policy and the Directorate General Competition.

The seminar is dedicated to practitioners involved in the management of the European Structural Investment Funds. Participants are expected to have knowledge of State aid in environmental protection projects.
