23 November - 24 November 2017 | Madrid


This year's EStALI Autumn Conference will bring you to Madrid.

We are delighted to organise this event in cooperation with and at the premises of the Centre for Competition Law of the Universidad CEU San Pablo.

Since its launch in 2003, EStALI events have grown to be the leading platform to present and discuss the latest developments in European State aid control. The high quality of the presentations as well as the analyses provided by our active participants guarantee a professional update on the most important issues.


Workshop | Day 1

The intensive workshop on the first day will give participants a profound insight into currently debated State aid issues, which will be explored and discussed in a small group, thus giving sufficient room for interaction, lively debates and your individual questions.

During the workshop, 2 topics will be discussed intensively.

As one of the topics, the workshop will examine the State aid rules for R&D&I projects, the essential question along economic and non-economic activities as well as the challenges of collaboration agreements.

The second topic will be announced in due course.
