It is our pleasure to invite you to the forthcoming seminar which will take place in the Arendt House auditorium on Wednesday 27 June 2018 on the topic of Services of general economic interest (SGEI): opportunities, room for manoeuvre and constraints after 5 years of application of Package II.

Opportunity

To what extent can an SGEI be implemented and maintained? What objectives can it pursue? What services may it provide?

Room for manœuvre

How to choose the operator, how to remunerate, monitor and encourage it to improve the quality of its services and/or its financial performance?

Constraints

Documentation, contractual and accounting requirements, monitoring and regular re-examination – reporting to the European Commission (forthcoming deadline: end of June 2018), etc.

These different questions which relate to SGEIs in all sectors (transport, energy, health, environment, telecommunications, etc.) will be addressed in particular with reference to practical case studies deriving from decisions of the Commission and European courts over recent years.
