The European Commission has approved, under EU state aid rules, an amendment to Germany’s map for granting regional aid until 31 December 2027, within the framework of the regional aid guidelines.
On 15 December 2021, the Commission approved the 2022-2027 regional aid map for Germany. On 30 May 2023, the Commission adopted a Communication regarding a possible mid-term review of the regional aid maps, taking into account updated statistics.
In this context, the amendment to Germany’s regional aid map approved today enables higher maximum amounts of aid to investments in the region of Saarlouis given the decrease of its gross domestic product per capita, and in the region of Saalfeld-Rudolstadt given the decrease of its population. The maximum amounts of aid will increase from 10% to 15% of the eligible investment costs in Saarlouis, and from 15% to 20% of the eligible investment costs in Saalfeld-Rudolstadt. The amended map will be in force from 1 January 2024 until 31 December 2027.
The non-confidential version of today’s decision will be made available under the case number SA.109329 in the state aid register on the Commission’s competition website once any confidentiality issues have been resolved.
