Innovative European Funds for innovative investments is an information and promotion campaign which was conducted by the Employers of Poland in cooperation with Deloitte, a consulting company, and with the Ministry of Regional Development. The project Innovative Funds for Innovative Investments was co-financed by the European Union from the Technical Assistance Operational Programme 2007-2013; it was launched on September 1, 2009 and completed on March 30, 2010.
During a series of 8 regional conferences which took place at unusual locations, such as techno parks and research & development centres, we were informing on:
- the notion of innovation - its scope and meaning,
- available financial instruments for innovative investments,
- requirements that entrepreneurs have to meet while applying for funds either at the regional or central level,
- a best practice in making the most of the European Funds.
Moreover, the entrepreneurs had an opportunity to have a free individual consultation with Deloitte expert at each conference. We handed them a guide to EU grants, which can be obtained for innovative investments. In the guide, one may find not only a detailed description of supporting instruments, but also an explanation of the most common terms, answers to frequent beneficiaries' questions, and finally - the dates of submitting applications.
Within the project, the webcast was organized, an online seminar led by Deloitte experts. We had a chance to participate in lectures on innovations and sources of financing during the meeting.
