State Aid is the use of state funding or resources to support businesses (undertakings). Universities can be undertakings for the purposes of State Aid. Not all State Aid is unlawful but any State Aid which has an anti-competitive effect within the EU will be unlawful unless the aid comes with an exemption or the European Commission authorises the aid.
