Reliefs, subsidies and the Polish Investment Zone

PrintMailRate-it

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Subsidies help grow businesses of all industries and sizes. Such funding comes primarily from the EU. For the most part, aid is granted through programmes which EU Member States manage by themselves. Sometimes, the European Commission handles its funds directly, e.g. by granting subsidies or by awarding public procurement contracts.


Stay up to date with the open programmes, calls for proposals and grants. Here you will find all important information about applying for funding from the EU and other sources.
