    (Faculty of Law, Social and Political Sciences “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati, Romania)

This paper comes to clarify the benefits of accessing the minimis aid by traders, as capital contributions, guarantees, risk capital measures in the innovation process, to create a new product, introducing a new method of manufacturing, entering in a new market or creating a new market, calling for a new raw material.
