Poland catching-up regions : activating entrepreneurship in deprived areas (English)

This document proposes a design for an enterprise support scheme in Świętokrzyskie and Podkarpackie regions of Poland. The objective of the Enterprise Competitiveness Scheme (ECS) is to support further competitiveness of Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in targeted regions to increase their contribution to regional economic growth, particularly through jobs. The scheme will boost SMEs abilities to compete with firms outside their region, through increased exports and or outcompeting imports. The ECS will establish an enterprise support system that is focused on demand for services from SMEs, rather than on the supply of particular support initiatives from BSIs. In brief, the ECS is comprised of three windows for enterprise support services: Operational; Strategic; and Group. In all three windows, beneficiary Small and Medium- Size enterprises (SMEs) will receive public financial support for co-financing of business advisory services to improve competitiveness and contribute to regional economic growth.
