Since 1990, Poland has been the fastest growing economy in Europe and the growth has continued strong in the recent years. The new government has taken supporting innovations as one of its main focus areas, and the government is looking for new models from the Nordic countries. Poland will receive EUR 82B from the EU’s structural funds during the period 2014–2020. Together with Poland’s own funding, this will create an investment program of over EUR 100B in the upcoming years. Please read more on Poland and the focus sectors in the attachment: Why POLAND.
