Poland (SMEs, Entrepreneurship and Innovation)

The Innovative Economy Operational Programme 2007-2013 is the main vehicle in Poland for pursuing the objectives of the Lisbon Strategy. It provides the practical framework for allocating and distributing EUR 8.25 billion of EU structural funds over the seven-year period, some 95% of which is earmarked for Lisbon objectives. The programme is managed by the Ministry for Regional Development; co-financing from the Polish government brings the total to EUR 9.71 billion, amounting to nearly 0.5% of GDP per annum. It is hoped that another EUR 2.42 billion will be raised from other sources.
