european economics : A recognised pure-player in public funding

In 2005, under the impetus of the Competition Commissioner Mrs. Neelie Kroes, the European Commission launched a comprehensive reform of State aid, with the slogan “Fewer and more targeted State aids.” A major component of this reform was the definition and subsequent implementation of a refined economic approach in state aid law.

It finds its full expression in the context of the individual notification procedure with in-depth examination of aid measures by the European Commission under competition rules, which applies when a company receives significant aid – several tens of millions of euros – for a strategic project.

A history rooted at the heart of State aid

In 2007, Marc ISABELLE, a Supélec engineer, IFP School engineer, and PhD in economics, joined the AII (Agency for Industrial Innovation) and took in charge State aid notifications to the European Commission.

In this role, he actively contributed in shaping the new methods and economic tools applied to State aid within this renewed community framework.

To capitalise on the expertise developed during his numerous interactions with the European Commission in the field of community control of State aid, Marc Isabelle decided to create european economics in 2009.

european economics market experienced significant acceleration in 2018 with the implementation of IPCEIs, allowing the company to expand its operations throughout Europe.

Narjiss Haddaoui, graduated with a Master’s degree in International Business from Paris Dauphine, and with an extensive sales and marketing experience in the industry, has joined the entrepreneurial journey at that time as a partner, to structure european economics and enable it to make this growth turn. Bet won! european economics has managed to double its turnover every year since 2018.
