The State Aid Modernisation (SAM) package, launched in 2012, foresees specific provisions for the evaluation of State Aid Schemes. In this context, the JRC.I1.CCME supports DG COMP in the quality assessment of the methodological approach, analysis and result, providing feedback on evaluation reports that Member States submit to the Commission to ensure that results are taken into account in the design of future aid measures.
