Content:

At this European seminar participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the specific scope of State aid rules in the agricultural sector.

State aid rules for the agricultural sector strongly differ from general EU State aid regulations. Even after years of experiences in this field, many Member States still face difficulties when implementing these rules.

  • When do you need to apply State aid rules in the agricultural sector and how can you identify State aid
  • What is the link between rural development measures and State aid
  • Which measures require notification and how can you handle the notification process
  • What are the Dos and Don’ts while working with the European Commission
  • How will the current Common Agricultural Policy be changed after 2013 and what are the impacts on agricultural State aid

The European seminar European State Aid in the Agricultural Sector offers answers to all these and many other questions related to State aid in the agricultural sector.

The lecturers are European experts and practitioners among others from:

  • European Commission, DG Agriculture and Rural Development
  • European Commission, DG Competition
  • Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, The Danish AgriFish Agency, Denmark
  • Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board, United Kingdom
  • Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, Germany
