On 5 February 2019 the consortium of Lithuania, France and Serbia was selected to implement the project EuropeAid/139349/IH/SER/RS “Support to Commission for State Aid Control” in the field of state aid. The project was officially implemented on 12 December 2021.
In 34 months of implementation foreign partners contributed to the establishment of a new legal framework for state aid in Serbia, organised training sessions on the EU state aid rules for more than 1,100 public sector employees and on-the-job trainings in 146 local self-government units. In total, 14 workshops were held to disseminate knowledge and exchange experience of the EU member states on state aid. The State Aid Register was prepared as a database available to the competent institutions, members of the Commission for State Aid Control and its professional service have been trained to use the Instrument for Economic and Financial Analysis and the State Aid Calculator. Finally, two manuals on state aid rules were prepared within the scope of the project activities.
