The first call within the cohesion policy 2014 – 2020 starts in October 2014


Throughout the years of 2014 until 2020 one third of the EU budget (about 325 billion euro) will be used for differently developed regions in the European Union. With the help of the cohesion policy, one of the most important investment instruments of the community, the EU supports investments in those regions in order to fund their development especially in areas such as employment, research and innovation as well as energy efficiency.

Among all member states Poland is the biggest recipient with EUR 82.5 billion. For further information concerning the amounts of funding of other member states please don’t hesitate to contact us.

There are appropriations offered for the private sector in the following areas:

  • Research and development
  • Renewable energies
  • Protection of the environment
  • Revitalisation
  • Investments in production

Subsidies are offered with an intensity of up to 70 % (within the area of research and development even 80 %) although it depends on the size of the company and location of the investment.

The economic situation of Poland offers several advantages: high qualified employees, a large internal market, low wage costs and well developed infrastructure.

Polish authorities work efficiently concerning the implementation of EU appropriations – the project appraisal doesn’t take longer than 4 months, there are no delays in payment. The whole application process is transparent. Companies in German speaking countries constitute the biggest foreign investor in Poland.
