  • Which measures require notification and how can you handle the notification process 
  • What are the Dos and Don’ts while working with the European Commission 
  • How will the current Common Agricultural Policy be changed after 2013 and what are the impacts on agricultural State aid The European seminar European State Aid in the Agricultural Sector offers answers to all these and many other questions related to State aid in the agricultural sector.
