On the basis of the legal provisions currently in force and of the practice of the CJEU and of the Commission on their application, in-depth analysis has been provided of the legal regime applicable to state compensation for the provision of SGEI. Thereby these rules have not been looked at isolated and detached from the general rules and principle governing provision of state aid within the Union, but it has constantly been attempted to place them in the bigger context of the rules on state aid, as well as to show their relationship with other fields of European law. Special attention is also paid to the relationship between the Altmark conditions, the general prohibition of state aid stipulated in Art 107 (1) TFEU and the special exception thereof contained in Art 106 (2) TFEU. In the course of this research, it has been attempted to define the concrete meaning of the separate sets of rules applicable to state compensation for the provision of SGEI as well as to identify and provide answers to certain theoretical and practical questions arising in the course of their application.
