Overview

During our EStALI events time restrictions often prevent us from spending the time needed on the various topics. Therefore, we introduced a new format where less participants had more time to look into the specific aspects of a chosen subject.

The first EStALI Seminar covered the Market Economy Investor Principle (MEIP).

For this two and a half-day course we explicitly chose a venue away from the buzz of a city - yet easy to reach from Munich International Airport - to allow a maximum of 25 delegates to engage in an intensive, lively, and interactive debate about the following aspects of the MEIP:

• The Application of the MEIP in the Jurisprudence and Administrative Practice
   
• The Applicability of the MEIP to Fiscal Measures

• The Role of the MEIP in the Banking Sector in the Post-Crisis Era

• Public Procurement and State Aid – Newest Developments and Novel Risks


Objectives

The aim of the seminar was to bring together State aid experts with diverse professional backgrounds to have them discuss a given subject in a form that combines depth of reasoning and debate with a level of interactivity that can only be achieved in a small group made up of participants with a homogeneous level of expertise and experience. Without time constraints this format gave ample room to thoroughly look into all of the diverse aspects of the chosen subject and do this in an interactive and dedicated manner. The individual presentations were followed by case studies and brainstorming sessions. Each of the active participants brought his background – as diverse as these were – the resulting mix vouching for a lively and enthusiastic debate.


Structure

The seminar had a two and a half day programme with the option to arrive one day earlier and to stay over the final weekend. The first two days (Thursday and Friday) featured a morning and an afternoon session, the last day (Saturday) a morning session only.
During the sessions a lecturer introduced the topic by way of a presentation. Thereafter, case studies and/or controversial discussions followed with sufficient time for Q&As whereas the lunch and coffee breaks allowed informal exchange and discussions.

Alongside the actual sessions social and leisure activities were planned on a voluntary basis.
