On 6 June 2018 the European Commission presented a proposal for a Regulation amending Regulation (EU) 2015/1588 on horizontal state aid. The Council of the European Union adopted the new Regulation on 26 November.
In May 2018 the Commission presented its proposals for the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027 (MFF). Building on that, the Commission proposed a number of horizontal and sectorial EU funding programmes, responding to new challenges whilst continuing successful established activities.
This proposed amendment of Regulation (EU) 2015/1588 aims to improve the interplay of those EU funding programmes with state aid rules. It enables the Commission to make targeted modifications of current state aid rules so that national money – including from the European Structural and Investment Fund managed at national level – and EU funds managed centrally by the Commission can be combined as seamlessly as possible, without distorting competition in the EU's single market.
