The Hellenic State Aid Institute was established in March 2010. Its members include most of the leading Greek scientists and practitioners in this field. HSAI is governed by a Scientific Board headed by Dr. Antonis Metaxas, PhD ("summa cum laude"), Law Faculty of FU Berlin, Lecturer of EU Law, University of Athens, Visiting Professor of EU Energy and Competition Law in various distinguished universities and Managing Partner of Law Firm “Metaxas & Associates” ( ) as President, Dr. Mihalis Kekelekis, Competition/State aid Officer, EFTA Surveillance Authority as Vice President and Stamatis Drakakakis as Coordinator of the Scientific Committee of HSAI and Partner of Law Firm “Koutalidis”.

The Institute’s main objective is research and education on EU State aid policy issues from a legal as well as from an economic point of view. Accordingly the Institute aims at promoting the awareness and disseminating knowledge of State aid rules and their enforcement at EU and national level while tracking any recent developments and trends in this area.

The Institute’s activities target public authorities, as well as academics, judges, private practitioners from various backgrounds and interested scientists from diverse fields which are already or wish to become familiar with EU State aid policy issues.

For the purpose of exchanging and acquiring knowledge and experiences, the Institute pursues and maintains international relations with other – primarily similar- organizations e.g. the European State Aid Law Institute.

The 4th Issue of 2012 of European State Aid Law Quarterly (EStAL) hosts a review of the book “State Aid: The Key Regulatory Texts. Critical Edition.”, which has been edited by the Hellenic State Aid Institute.
