Community framework for State aid for research and development and innovation (2006/C 323/01)
The aim of this framework is to ensure economic efficiency through State aid and in particular to make it easier for EU Member States to better target the aid to the relevant market failures. State aid for R&DI shall be compatible if the aid can be expected to lead to additional R&DI and if the distortion of competition is not considered to be contrary to the common interest, which the European Commission equates for the purposes of this framework with economic efficiency.
