**NEW** State Aid in Research, Development and Innovation: A Guide for Universities

Produced by AURIL and PraxisUnico in conjunction with Blake Morgan LLP and Northwood Reid.

This guide was prepared in order to inform universities which are active in R&D and innovation about State Aid legislation in order that any associated risks can be assessed and mitigated. Our intention is to encourage research, development and innovation – and hence economic growth - by demystifying the regulations and providing examples (case studies) which resonate with the higher education sector. Ultimately, the State Aid regulations exist and need to be complied with, but there are broad exemptions such as the GBER which provide universities with a great deal of freedom to operate effectively.

This document has a variety of links to current documentation. ** Updated 18.4.16**

We have added a further series of links below that we think will provide further information. These are external sites and HTA cannot be held responsible for their content.

BBO ESF Support Launches ESF Readiness Questionnaire - June 2015

Find out if ESF is right for you with this ESF Readiness Questionnaire. The questionnaire does not form part of the assessment process for Building Better Opportunities, it is designed for you to:

  • Assess how ready you are to apply for, receive and manage ESF Funds
  • Help you as a potential applicant to make an informed decision on whether or not to apply and how to structure your project/partnership
  • Identify areas where you may need to pay particular attention in the bidding and project management process and areas where you may wish to seek support and training
