Impact of state aid on competition and competitiveness during the COVID-19 pandemic: an early assessment

17-12-2020

This economic assessment of EU state aid principles and practises related to the COVID-19 pandemic confirms the clear focus on maintaining the level playing field in the EU single market. Future monitoring and policy fine-tuning, focusing on SMEs, and keeping all Member States involved are the main challenges. Moreover, current policies fail to incorporate a strong focus on broader, strategic policy goals like the green and digital transformation of the European economy or the enhancing of EU firms ...

State Aid and EU funding: are they compatible?

16-04-2018

State aid involves the transfer of state resources. These are resources which are controlled by public authorities. EU funds which are granted directly to undertakings without coming under the control of a public authority of a Member State cannot be considered to be state resources. However, EU funds channelled through managing authorities become state resources and can constitute state aid if all the other criteria of Article 107(1) TFEU are satisfied.

Competition in Air Transport

16-04-2018

Competition in the aviation sector pertains to different sets of rules, competition law on the one hand and, given the cross-border interdependencies of transport markets, international rules on the other hand. The workshop aimed to examine the current situation of competition in air transport using the proposed regulation on Safeguarding competition in air transport, repealing Regulation (EC) No 868/2004 as a practical example and starting point for the discussion.

Interim evaluation of Horizon 2020

As required by the regulation, the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 – the European Union (EU) framework programme (FP) for research and innovation – began in October 2016 with a public consultation to gather feedback from stakeholders three years in.

As required by the regulation, the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 – the European Union (EU) framework programme (FP) for research and innovation – began in October 2016 with a public consultation to gather feedback from stakeholders three years in. The Commission performed its own mid-term evaluation and asked experts to evaluate the programme's specific instruments. In parallel, the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the advisory committees conducted their own, separate evaluations of the programme. The Commission adopted its conclusions on the interim evaluation of Horizon 2020 in January 2018, confirming that the programme was relevant and presented clear EU added value. Implementation was considered to be efficient and the first results suggested that the programme was also effective in reaching its objectives. The integration of research and innovation and the Horizon 2020 pillar structure provided for greater internal coherence compared with previous framework programmes. All the evaluations highlighted four key issues to be addressed by the next FP. First, the programme budget needs to match better the funding required to bring the success rate back to acceptable levels. Second, the unbalanced distribution of FP funding across the EU raises concerns regarding the impact of the use of the excellence criterion and calls for changes to enable the various EU funds to generate more synergistic effects so as to maintain EU competitiveness and promote EU cohesion in research and innovation. Third, the evaluations highlight the will to improve the shared, multi-level governance between the EU, Member States and regions and to promote the co-design and co-construction of the FP with the public and civil society. Finally, there is widespread agreement that the EU research and innovation funding landscape has become too complex and should be streamlined, questioning the EU added value of each of the instruments and partnerships.

Research for REGI Committee - State aid and Cohesion Policy

05-03-2018

European Union funding co-managed by Member State authorities is considered to be a state resource that may only be granted in conformity with the rules on state aid. Compliance with both state aid and Structural Funds’ rules appears to be problematic, hence this study identifies the relevant issues in the interface between these two sets of rules and makes proposals to facilitate compliance.

Kilpailupolitiikka

01-11-2017

Euroopan unionin toiminnasta tehdyn sopimuksen 101–109 artiklassa annetaan säännöt sisämarkkinakilpailusta. Sääntöjen mukaan kiellettyjä ovat sellaiset yritysten väliset sopimukset, jotka rajoittavat kilpailua sisämarkkinoilla. Määräävässä asemassa olevat yritykset eivät saa käyttää asemaansa väärin ja vaikuttaa näin jäsenvaltioiden väliseen kauppaan. Komissio valvoo unioninlaajuisia yrityskeskittymiä ja yritysostoja ja voi kieltää sellaiset tietyin ehdoin. Kilpailua vääristävät valtiontuet yksittäisille ...

Euroopan unionin toiminnasta tehdyn sopimuksen 101–109 artiklassa annetaan säännöt sisämarkkinakilpailusta. Sääntöjen mukaan kiellettyjä ovat sellaiset yritysten väliset sopimukset, jotka rajoittavat kilpailua sisämarkkinoilla. Määräävässä asemassa olevat yritykset eivät saa käyttää asemaansa väärin ja vaikuttaa näin jäsenvaltioiden väliseen kauppaan. Komissio valvoo unioninlaajuisia yrityskeskittymiä ja yritysostoja ja voi kieltää sellaiset tietyin ehdoin. Kilpailua vääristävät valtiontuet yksittäisille yrityksille tai tuotteille ovat kiellettyjä, mutta niitä voidaan myöntää tietyissä tapauksissa. Kilpailusäännöt koskevat myös julkisia yrityksiä, julkisia palveluja ja yleistä etua koskevia palveluja. Kilpailusääntöjä voidaan olla soveltamatta, jos näiden palvelujen tavoitteiden toteutuminen vaarantuu.
