What is the value of the offered EU aid for investments in companies?
If you plan the development of your company, you should consider the cheapest available source of financing for your plans, that is EU grants. Currently, all key investments in Europe are completed with the use of EU funds. The EU particularly wants to offer capital injection from public funds to investments in new technologies or renewable energy sources, as these goals form the basis of the EU’s strategy for sustainable development.
The ABBEYS experts will help you to understand the EU’s political strategy and adjust the plan for the development of your company to the directions set by the EU. We help our clients to obtain grants, because we perfectly know and understand the EU’s strategic documents, procedures and grant distribution mechanism.
In the years 2021-2030 the EU offers as much as EUR 16.5 billion of support for Polish business entities.
EUR 12 billion of grants from EU funds is assigned to grants for the implementation of enhanced production technologies in Polish companies. In addition, the EU will also assign EUR 4.5 billion of grants to investments related to energy transformation and climate protection in companies, particularly to the co-financing of construction or modernisation of sewage treatment plants. The non-reimbursable grant is payable upfront as advance payments made in the course of completion of the investment schedule.
