Draft RAG briefing paper

As many of you will know, the Commission issued Draft Regional Aid Guidelines for public consultation in January. These propose significant changes to regional aid in the EU, particularly regarding the spatial coverage of policy and the targeting of aid to large firms.

Following the publication of 2010 regional GDP data by Eurostat last week, this Briefing paper from the European Policies Research Centre at the University of Strathclyde offers an initial assessment of the impact of the Draft RAG: http://www.eprc.strath.ac.uk/news/Policy_Briefing_Mar_2013.pdf

Thanks to Fiona Wishlade, Director of the EPRC, for sending this in.
