Scope of aid

Grants will be awarded for the development, testing and eventual implementation of innovative technologies and products in the enterprise.

The minimum amount of eligible costs is 5 million zloty and the maximum is 50 million zloty.

The possible level of funding for large enterprises will be as follows:

  • for industrial research – 50% + a bonus of 15%
  • for development work – 25% + a bonus of 15%
  • for pre-implementation work – 90% (with a cap for de minimis aid).

The level of funding for R&D work for medium-sized enterprises will be additionally increased by 10% and for small enterprises – by 20%.

Our experts will be happy to answer your questions about the programme and to advise you on how to apply for the funding. You are welcome to contact us.
