In order to obtain the PhD degree, Cecilie Fanøe Petersen has submitted her thesis entitled: Award of Public Contracts as a Means to Conferring State Aid: A Legal Analysis of the Interface Between Public Procurement Law and State Aid Law

Mandag, 9 april, 2018 - 13:00 to 15:00

The Thesis investigates the interface between State aid law and public procurement law with an emphasis on analysing when the award of public contracts by contracting authorities constitutes State aid within the meaning of Article 107(1) TFEU. The contributions of the Thesis are numerous: They all contribute to conclude that contracting authorities are capable of transferring State aid when public contracts are awarded and that the benchmark for assessment of whether State aid is granted relies on a number of factors which are indicative for whether market price has been obtained.
